Two Brigham Young University researchers are principal contributors to the largest comprehensive study to date on how cancer spreads and affects proteins in the body.

As part of the National Cancer Institute’s Clinical Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium, BYU biology professors Matthew Bailey and Sam Payne have analyzed more than 1,000 tumors across 10 types of cancer, providing a massive data set that could potentially lead to new protein-based therapies.

“The data tells a story, and it is my job to understand the implications of that story,” Bailey said. “We are starting to get a more complete picture of cancer and the consequences of genetic mutations on proteins.”
