Associate Professor, UCSF School of Medicine
Eric Collisson is a medical oncologist with a specific interest in the genomics of cancer. He received his B.A. from UC Berkeley in 1996, and his M.D. from UC Los Angeles in 2002.
His laboratory uses a variety of techniques to interrogate three basic themes in the biology and clinical behavior of these deadly cancers: (1) inter-patient tumor heterogeneity at the temporal and anatomic levels, (2) inter-patient heterogeneity between different patients, and (3) tumor-microenvironmental interactions. He uses a combination of genetically engineered mouse models, cell lines, and clinically derived samples to interrogate multiple genomic outputs with a focus on genomic DNA and mRNA.
In this fireside chat session, patients, care providers, and researchers will sit together to discuss the needs of patients and care providers and how to address these needs with new technologies and research.
