Kathryn Phillips, PhD

Professor

My work focuses on the translation of new technologies into improved patient outcomes, particularly the translation of personalized/precision medicine—targeting health care interventions to patients based on their genetics—into clinical care and health policy.

Dorie Apollonio, PhD

Professor

My research considers the role of scientific evidence and interest group lobbying in decision making on public health. This work uses multiple data sources including internal industry documents, campaign finance reports, administrative datasets, and interviews.

Study builds breast tissues to track how abnormal cells affect neighbors

It can take just the flick of a genetic switch for breast cells to kick-start the normally well-regulated process of growth seen in puberty, pregnancy, or the menstrual cycle—or the mutation of that switch to initiate the unchecked proliferation of cancer.

Adam Abate, PhD, a faculty member in the UCSF Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, is a prime trial candidate for QB3’s Startup in a Box.

School of Pharmacy biotech symposium features case histories of future pharmaceuticals

The 2nd Annual Bay Area Biotechnology Symposium, presented by the UCSF School of Pharmacy’s Industry Outreach Program in coordination with the UCSF Postdoctoral Scholars Association at Mission Bay in late May 2011, fully lived up to its billing: “Pharmaceuticals of the Futur

UCSF technology used to trigger cell death becomes basis of company’s cancer therapy research and development

A technology developed in the laboratory of James Wells, PhD, chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, UCSF School of Pharmacy, will drive a new approach to cancer treatment that s

Wells uses small molecules to trigger cell death

Research directed by senior author James Wells, PhD, chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, UCSF School of Pharmacy, has opened the door to a new way of studying and better understanding the processes of cell death (apoptosis), blood clotting, and other biochemic

Study identifies lack of information about HER2 testing practices

Breast cancer patients might not be getting full advantage from a genetic screening test for the protein known as HER2 to help determine if the use of trastuzumab (marketed as Herceptin) is the best course of treatment for them. For patients whose breast cancer cells produce excessive amounts of...

UCSF researchers join consortium to target cancer in new ways

Scientists from the UCSF School of Pharmacy's Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry have been selected to lead a new federal initiative aimed at developing new classes of drugs to target cancer.
