Research & Innovations
UCSF wants to increase the number of survivors and to ensure that each of these survivors is completely free of disease. That is why the Endocrine Surgical Oncology Research Program was established in 1990. The Program focuses on surgical training combined with basic, clinical and translational laboratory research (using new basic science discoveries to improve patient care). Through this Program, UCSF is improving treatment, while at the same time training tomorrow's leaders in the care of patients with thyroid cancer and other endocrine tumors.
