The Human Cancer Proteome Project (Cancer-HPP) is an international initiative organized by HUPO whose key objective is to decipher the human cancer proteome through a coordinated effort by cancer proteome researchers around the world. The ultimate goal is to map the entire human cancer proteome to disclose tumor biology and drive improved diagnostics, treatment and management of cancer. Here we report the progress in the cancer proteomics field to date, and discuss future proteomic developments that will be needed to optimally delineate cancer phenotypes and advance the molecular characterization of this significant disease that is one of the leading causes of death worldwide.
