Date:        Every fourth Tuesday of the month
Time:        Noon to 1 p.m.
Location: UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, Breakout Rooms 1101/1103, 4501 X St., Sacramento

The purpose of  this tumor board is to focus on oncology cases for which Foundation Medicine has molecularly analyzed the patient's tumor, and to discuss targeted therapy for our patients. The Molecular Oncology Tumor Board will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month. The format will include an overview of the patient's case history by the physician and a pathology report of the tumor, followed by a case report by Foundation Medicine of their molecular profile findings. This tumor board should be interesting and informative to physicians, researchers and physician scientists alike.

Biostatistics Workshop

Date:        Tuesdays, weekly
Time:        Noon to 1:30 p.m.
Location: Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) Building, Room 1477, 2921 Stockton Blvd., Sacramento. Parking and entrance are behind the building.

Researchers often have questions about statistics in designing a study or analyzing data. Some statistical questions can be easily answered in a short conversation with a knowledgeable statistician. In order to efficiently and effectively meet the statistical needs of clinical and translational investigators at UC Davis, the CTSC — in collaboration with the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center — maintain weekly office hours for statistical consultations. These office hours are an opportunity for investigators to consult with a statistician about the design, analysis or presentation of medical research studies in a friendly, informal setting.

Due to the popularity of this program, investigators wanting to attend one of the upcoming office hours are asked to reserve a spot in advance. You may make a reservation up to 30 days in advance. In order to be able to adequately address each attendee’s question, space is limited. If time permits, we will take questions from attendees without a reservation.
