The Cancer Biomarkers Research Group promotes research to identify, develop, and validate biological markers for early cancer detection and cancer risk assessment. Activities include development and validation of promising cancer biomarkers, collaborative databases and informatics systems, and new technologies or the refinement of existing technologies.

Adductomics Research Program (ARP)
This program promotes adducts/adductomics research-based strategies to identify a wide variety of molecular signatures for assessing risks, both exogenous and endogenous, as well as the combined effects to aid in optimization of cancer screening and prevention strategies
Alliance of Glycobiologists for Cancer Research
Tumor Glycomics Laboratories work to reveal cancer-related dynamics of complex carbohydrates.
Consortium for Imaging and Biomarkers (CIB)
Research Units integrate imaging strategies with biomarkers to improve cancer screening, early detection of aggressive cancer, assessment of cancer risk, and diagnosis of early stage cancer.
Consortium for Molecular Characterization of Screen-Detected Lesions
Seven laboratories and a coordinating center focus on identifying screening-detected pre-cancers and early cancers, including within the tumor microenvironment.
Early Detection Research Network (EDRN)
Labs and centers bring together comprehensive infrastructure and resources critical to discovery, development and validation of biomarkers for cancer risk and early detection.
Liquid Biopsy Consortium
A partnership with academic and industrial laboratory teams developing noninvasive liquid biopsy techniques to detect early stage cancer from biomarkers in blood, urine and sputum.
Pancreatic Cancer Detection Consortium (PCDC)
Research teams develop and test new molecular and imaging biomarkers to detect early stage pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and its precursor lesions.
Program to Assess the Rigor and Reproducibility of Exosome-Derived Analytes for Cancer Detection
This program isolates and characterizes exosomes and their cargo for discovery of predictive biomarkers for risk assessment, detection, diagnosis and prognosis of early cancer.
Translational Liver Cancer (TLC) Consortium
Five Translational Research Centers conduct studies to improve surveillance of liver cancer in high-risk populations, increase detectability at early stages, and stratify at-risk patients.
