Colorectal Cancer Subtyping Consortium (CRCSC)

A collection of colorectal cancer researchers and data scientists focused on developing robust, consensus driven characterizations in CRC using molecular and clinical data.

Colorectal Cancer Subtyping Consortium (CRCSC)

The Colorectal Cancer Subtyping Consortium (CRCSC) is an international consortium of colorectal cancer (CRC) researchers, data scientists and clinicians from 15 academic, pharmaceutical, and non-profit partners which represents the first effort to generate consensus cancer subtypes, taking a major step toward precision medicine in CRC.

By comparing multiple classifiers, the CRCSC was able to identify four biologically distinct subtypes of CRC with unique clinical and molecular markers, a remarkable overlap considering different methodologies and datasets used by individual groups.
