The PROOF Centre is a partnership across industry, academia, healthcare, government, patients and the public committed to rapidly discover, implement and commercialize blood tests to address unmet medical needs. By uniting a cross-disciplinary hub of people and teams in a collaborative, not-for-profit model, we can speed up development of these new tests and apply them sooner.
