Physicians and scientists from UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center will be joining the world's leading scientists, clinicians, advocates and industry luminaries from institutions around the world to discuss the most recent advancements in cancer research at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting.

The ASCO Annual Meeting offers education and scientific sessions in all aspects of oncology, and this year’s theme is “Caring for every patient, learning from every patient.” Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held virtually from May 29 to June 3. Presentations from UCLA researchers will highlight the latest developments in the basic, translational, clinical, and prevention-focused research, emphasizing work in immunotherapy and combination therapies.

More than a dozen abstracts, sessions and symposia at ASCO 2020 will feature members of the Cancer Center. Below are UCLA-led oral and poster presentations where UCLA researchers are speaking or appearing.
