Institute of Urologic Oncology Celebrates New Home
A reception to celebrate the new location of the UCLA Institute of Urologic Oncology (IUO) was held on November 10, 2014. The IUO, on the third floor of the new Edie & Lew Wasserman Building at UCLA, provides a “one-stop shop” for patients with urologic cancers. The new space also supports the IUO’s clinical trials, which allow scientists and researchers to translate laboratory findings from bench to bedside more rapidly and effectively.
More than 90 guests and faculty members attended the reception, which featured remarks by Dr. Mark S. Litwin (FEL ’93), chair of the Department of Urology and The Fran and Ray Stark Foundation Chair in Urology; Dr. Arie Belldegrun, director of the IUO and the Roy and Carol Doumani Chair in Urological Oncology; Dr. Stuart Holden, associate director of the IUO; and Wasserman building architect Michael Palladino of Richard Meier & Partners Architects, LLP.
