The HDFCCC Cancer Control Program and Cancer Immunology Program invite you to a multidisciplinary symposium on the science at the intersection of HIV, aging, and non-AIDS-defining cancers. Cancer is emerging as a leading cause of death in HIV-infected individuals, with the risk particularly high for non-AIDS-defining cancers in older men and women. Come hear some great science on the topic, participate in the new NACHA Interest Group, and hear about pilot funding opportunities for UCSF researchers in the field, supported by an NCI supplement to the HDFCCC Core Grant and by the HDFCCC.
