BRCA Gene Mutations, Breast Cancer, and World-class Expertise    

BRCA1 and BRCA2  are  genes  that normally have the role of providing instructions on repairing damage and preventing cancer in our bodies. Inherited mutations in these genes increase the risk of breast, ovarian, and several other cancers.


We invite you to join UCSF's distinguished experts: Heather Greenwood, MD; Alan Ashworth, PhD, FRS; Pamela Munster, MD; Mindy Goldman, MD; and cancer survivor and patient advocate Laura Holmes Haddad, author of This is Cancer: Everything You Need to Know, from the Waiting Room to the Bedroom, for refreshments and conversation. Whether you know your BRCA status or need to learn more, this gathering will help you understand genetic risks and how they affect health outcomes. CME Credits available.

This season's Radiology topic: 
Personalized Medicine Powered by Precision Imaging


Meet world-renowned experts from the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging who are using and developing new, innovative precision imaging tools to enhance diagnosis, improve disease monitoring, and optimize treatment in the individual patient. In close partnership with subspecialty physicians from other UCSF departments, radiologists are now able to use these tools to pinpoint and better treat disorders such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, and degenerative spine and joint disease at earlier stages. This series of lectures will explain how emerging technologies - including specific artificial intelligence platforms - will rely upon imaging to dramatically improve accuracy, safety, and outcomes for patients in the very near future.
