Continuing the incredible momentum of the national Cancer Moonshot kick-off event in June convened by Vice President Joe Biden, Biocom and the American Cancer Society invite you to attend the second Cancer Moonshot Summit on Monday, December 12.

Our lineup of speakers brings together San Diego’s brightest cancer researchers, developers of cancer therapeutics, patient advocates, and prominent thought leaders of key life science institutions to discuss innovative ways our region can unite and double the rate of progress in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Find potential collaborators, make valuable connections, and get inspired by the collective progress we are making to find a cure.

The Summit will include three distinct panel discussions, focusing on cancer research, therapeutics, the role of biotech and pharma in discovering a cure, and patient advocacy. Dick Woodruff, Senior Vice President of Federal Advocacy, at the American Cancer Society, Cancer Action Network will provide a political update and share insights on the recent outcome of the presidential election and what it may mean for the Cancer Moonshot initiative. We are also proud to feature renowned precision medicine expert, Razelle Kuzrock, MD, Senior Deputy Director of Clinical Science at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, as our keynote speaker.
