Allen and Lee-Hwa Chao Lectureship in Cancer Research

The Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center's premiere annual event, the Allen and Lee-Hwa Chao Lectureship in Cancer Research, honors the late Hsi-Hsiung Chao by bringing internationally renowned leaders in the field of cancer research to UC Irvine to share insight, provoke thought and stimulate conversation about the myriad issues surrounding cancer. Serving both the campus and the wider community, speakers present two lectures, one tailored to a general audience (the Community Lecture) and the other to a technical audience (the Scientific Lecture).

Attendance is free, but registration is required for each lecture.

The 2016-17 Chao Lecture is CANCELLED
