Boston University Investigators and Staff Attend 2020 Stand Up to Cancer Scientific Summit

Investigators and staff from BU recently attended the 2020 Stand up to Cancer Scientific Summit on behalf of our SU2C-LUNGevity-ALA-AACR Lung Cancer Interception Dream Team. Dr. Avi Spira (principal investigator), Dr. Sarah Mazzilli (junior investigator) and Dr. Liz Moses (project manager), as well as collaborators from UCLA, co-lead Dr. Steve Dubinett and Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Dr. Mary Reid and our two patient advocates, traveled to Santa Monica to hear the fascinating work of the SU2C-funded research teams and were able to present an exciting update on our work over the past 6 months on the pre-cancer genome atlas and early detection biomarkers for lung cancer. Feedback from the scientific review team was very positive and they are excited about the work we have planned over the next 6 months!
