Previous Event: Cancer Showcase 2015

Thirty UCSF basic, clinical, and population scientists shared their progress in a wide range of areas, from big data to quality of life.

A cancer is as unique as the individual life it threatens. The disease is driven by each cancer’s unique genomic fingerprint, and each patient experiences it in ways that are profoundly personal. The presentations addressed the latest research, treatments, and developments and allowed participants to interact with UCSF scientist-clinicians as well as survivors and friends.

UCSF’s Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is engaged as never before at every level of the disease – from the micro-details of individual genes to the big picture of the patient’s experience.
