Werb receives AACR award


Zena Werb, PhD, received the 2018 AACR Distinguished Lectureship in Breast Cancer Research which is generously funded by a grant from the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. She received the award just before her presentation, “What can we learn from breast cancers that metastasize or don’t?”

Werb is a professor of anatomy and associate director of basic science at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of California, San Francisco. She was honored for her pioneering studies involving the elucidation of the mechanistic role of the extracellular microenvironment in regulating breast epithelial cell function. Her research has led to a paradigm shift in the understanding of mammary gland development as well as breast cancer progression and metastasis.
