In March, brilliant junior researchers interacted with their more experienced colleagues from different labs who work in different disciplines. Clinicians, bench scientists and translational researchers - medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, immunologists, chemists and geneticists - formally and informally tested each other's assumptions, offered suggestions, honed and shaped and found places where their work might combine to accelerate discovery.

Welcome to new HDFCCC Members
We Go For Good! - HDFCCC Staff
Lamorna and Malinda work in the BOP. Their laboratory group is focused on various aspects of personalized approaches to breast cancer treatment. The larger breast cancer program is advancing the understanding of breast cancer biology, developing new therapies, and personalizing treatment.
In May 2014 Lamorna and Malinda conceived a project to promote exercise and raise awareness of diseases while supporting charitable causes and having fun. Their primary goal is to ElliptiGO across the United States and raise money for breast cancer research programs at UCSF.
To help them prepare for the larger goal they are planning a 230 mile "Circle the Bay" ride which is scheduled for June 4-11, 2015.
