Precision Medicine

The twin pillars of precision medicine and precision population health guide research and treatment at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Through precision medicine we are revolutionizing cancer care and providing patients with the latest, most personalized treatments more rapidly than ever before.

Bakar Precision Cancer Medicine Building

By bringing together researchers, clinicians, and supportive care in one state-of-the-art building, UCSF is revolutionizing cancer care and providing patients with the latest, most personalized treatments—including immunotherapy, molecular profiling of tumors, and genetic counseling—more rapidly than ever before.

Molecular Oncology Initiative

The mission of the Molecular Oncology Initiative is to guide the development and implementation of precision medicine for UCSF cancer patients through the integration of molecular analyses into patient clinical care.

Cancer Immunotherapy Program

The UCSF Cancer Immunotherapy Program and corresponding clinic provide patients and their families with streamlined access to cutting-edge cancer immunotherapies.

Center for BRCA Research

The Center for BRCA Research provides a central resource for families with BRCA and other mutations to receive personalized care and planning for their long-term health and well-being.

Benioff Initiative for Prostate Cancer Research

The Benioff Initiative for Prostate Cancer Research seeks to transform prostate cancer treatment, from a “one-size-fits-all” approach, to a  strategy where therapies are informed by the molecular mechanisms that govern a patient’s individual cancer. 

Precision Imaging for Cancer and Therapy (PICT)

The PICT program brings together basic, translational and clinical scientists in order to integrate cutting edge, multi-modality imaging into all aspects of patient care and cancer research.
