We are pleased to invite you to the 17th annual Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center scientific retreat. This year's event will be held from noon Friday, Sept. 26th through Saturday evening, Sept. 27th at the Hyatt Regency Suites in Palm Springs, CA.

We have what promises to be an exciting agenda, including keynote speaker Dr. Ze'ev Ronai, PhD.  Dr. Ronai is Professor and Deputy Director of the NCI-designated Cancer Center at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, La Jolla, California.  Dr. Ronai is an Ronaiinternationally renowned cancer biologist with expertise in the study of signaling networks that are deregulated in cancer, including networks that utilize ubiquitin ligases, stress activated kinases and ATF transcription factors.
