The Symposium was held in collaboration with Susan G. Komen, Orange County, and titled ‘Metastasis Research, Treatment, and Prevention Advances: From Bench to Bedside’ The goal was to present a summary of existing treatment options and ongoing research efforts in metastasis, for local patients, families, and patient advocates.

The Metastasis Research Society held its biennial meeting this September in Chengdu, China.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) provides several seed grants per year to junior investigators at UCI through an Institutional Research Grant. Dr. Lawson’s award will fund a new project aimed at investigating and targeting breast cancer brain metastasis.
