June 14– Stress & Cancer – Neural Regulation of the Cancer Genome

SPECIAL GUEST Steve W. Cole, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA School of Medicine

Dr. Cole is the world’s foremost expert on molecular pathways through which social conditions, psychological processes and the nervous system influence the human genome and cancer biology.

This talk provides an update on what we have learned over the last decade in scientific research on stress and cancer. Some common ideas turn out to be myths (stress generally does NOT cause cancer). Others appear to be true (stress CAN make existing cancers more aggressive). And a growing range of new strategies are being developed to protect the health and well-being of cancer patients from the adverse biological impacts of stress.
