bring together scientists from Lawrence Livermore, UC Davis
from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and UC Davis met at
the cancer center in February to discuss a wide range of projects
and possible collaborations.
Feb. 3, the UC Davis Cancer Center hosted a conference on genomics
and cancer, focusing on how cancer researchers at UC Davis might
work alongside Lawrence Livermore in the development of high-tech
of possible collaboration include new devices for diagnostic imaging,
minimally invasive treatments for cancer, genomics and cancer, environmental
toxicology and pharmacokinetics.
next day, the Center for Laser Applications in Medicine, an affiliation
between the UC Davis Health System and Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory, held its first annual symposium to outline new developments
in optical technology for biomedical research and medical practice.
two-year-old program is one of only five centers of excellence in
the nation funded by the Department of Energy to encourage the development
of lasers to address medical problems. Besides cancer, researchers
affiliated with the Center for Laser Applications in Medicine are
looking at photodynamic therapy in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis;
new catheters for treating stroke and heart disease; and using optical
coherence tomography to detect dental carries without radiation.
