Cancer directly impacts 1 of every 3 people. Science and technology have transformed the fight against cancer since then-President Richard Nixon called for a “War on Cancer” by signing the National Cancer Act of 1971. Now there is a renewed effort to push the boundaries of medicine in a search for a cure with President Obama’s Cancer Moonshot.

From precision medicine, to novel drug development, to the new frontiers of immunology, researchers and clinicians from the UA Cancer Center will discuss the state of cancer research and its impact on the newest and most promising cancer fighting treatments moving into the clinic.

The BEAR DOWN. BEAT CANCER lecture series, which is FREE and open to the public, focuses on trends in research and clinical care involving such topics as breast cancer, head and neck cancer, translational science, and diet.
