What's new in breast cancer research, treatment and prevention?
Please join us for this month's public lecture as we welcome noted expert, Anne M. Wallace, MD, FACS, who will present "The Latest in Breast Cancer Treatment and Prevention."
A member of both the Division of General Surgery and the Division of Plastic Surgery, she is Director of the Breast Care Unit at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center, where she has directed the breast program since 1995. The Breast Care Unit is a team of doctors, nurses, researchers, and other health professionals who work closely together to provide excellent care and the latest available treatments for patients who have breast cancer.
Dr. Wallace participates in the Translational Oncology Program at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. In her research, Dr. Wallace studies the causes, behavior, and treatment of breast cancer and melanoma. Her special research interests include breast cancer prevention and the improvement of techniques for sentinel lymph node biopsy. She is an investigator in the ongoing National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) study of breast cancer treatments as well as several other studies. She also collaborates with basic science researchers to develop new ways to detect breast cancer early and to identify individuals who are at higher risk for developing the disease.
Dr. Wallace holds leadership positions in several national and local cancer organizations, including the American Cancer Society, the American Melanoma Society, and the California Breast Cancer Research Council. She has served as Vice President of Cancer Control for the Golden Triangle Division of the American Cancer Society and as Chairman of the California Breast Cancer Research Council.
