The PROOF (Prevention of Organ Failure) Centre is a not-for-profit organization that develops biomarker tests to better predict, diagnose, manage and treat a range of diseases. We are a cross-disciplinary biomarker development engine of partners representing academia, health care, government, industry, patients and the public. Our unique infrastructure, combined with our scientific and computational expertise, enables us to speed up the development of biomarker blood tests, applying them sooner to improve and save lives.
The centre’s service arm provides expertise in computation, “-omic” science and biomarker workflow to organizations seeking to discover, develop and implement blood-based molecular biomarkers in a clinical setting.
The PROOF Centre was initially established by the Networks of Centres of Excellence Secretariat under the Centre of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (NCE CECR) Program, and is co-hosted by the University of British Columbia and Providence Health Care in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
