Seminars and Educational Activities
For greater than 20 years, the Cancer Center has hosted a weekly seminar series as a forum for interactions between UCLA faculty, researchers, physicians, students, and staff to learn about impactful research being performed at UCLA and elsewhere, and to host scientific leaders from other institutions. The Center also organizes journal clubs, tumor board meetings, symposia, retreats, shared resource workshops and other activities.

Women in Oncology Initiative
Launched in fall 2018 the Women in Oncology Initiative is a program that seeks to bring together female oncology leaders from across Los Angeles and neighboring counties. Participants are from the UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, City of Hope, USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Center, and community oncology practices. Together they work to develop programs and provide opportunities to professionally advance women at all stages in their careers. For information on the Initiative, contact Allison Muff via email.
