Each year the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) at UCSF sponsors a disease-specific symposium convening leading scientists to San Francisco to share their work.
The event will bring together clinicians and scientists from industry as well as academia to share ideas about the underlying biology of specific types of pediatric cancer, and to discuss new treatments.
The 2014 Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center Symposium, “Targeting RAS Now for Future Cancer Therapy”, will be held Thursday, June 19th and Friday, June 20th, 2014 at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.
There will be five scientific sessions that will span the gamut of RAS biology and biochemistry in relation to normal and abnormal development and relevance to cancer initiation, progression and therapy. The scientific sessions will be open to academic and industry colleagues in the Bay Area.
