The Third Annual UACC Scientific Retreat

Friday, April 21, 2017
Westward Look Resort

The Theme for this year’s Retreat will be

“Drug Discovery and Development: from Bench to Bedside”

 

This year’s Keynote Speaker will be

Dean W. Felsher, MD, PhD

Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and Pathology

Stanford University

 

Dr. Felsher studies how oncogenes initiate and sustain tumorigenesis. He has developed model systems whereby he can conditionally activate oncogenes in normal human and mouse cells in tissue culture or in specific tissues of transgenic mice. In particular using the tetracycline regulatory system, Dr. Felsher has generated a conditional model system for MYC-induced tumors.

He has shown that cancers caused by the conditional over-expression of the MYC proto-oncogene regress with its inactivation. Thus, even though cancer is a multi-step process, the inactivation of one oncogene can be sufficient to induce tumor regression.
