About Us

The Allen and Lee-Hwa Chao Lectureship in Cancer Research was established at UC Irvine's Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center in honor of Hsi-Hsiung Chao, a UC Irvine benefactor who died in 1999 and the father of Allen Chao, who along with his siblings are also major donors. 

The lectureship series hosts distinguished guest lecturers in the field of cancer research to speak at the university. The series aspires to enhance perspectives on cancer for clinicians, faculty, researchers, students and the community at large through interesting and thought-provoking lectures by world renowned leaders in the field of cancer.
