Considering BRCA Genes: Knowledge Improves Outcomes

Join us for a gathering of UCSF’s distinguished global experts on BRCA mutations’ relationship to breast cancer. Learn about genetic testing, cancer risks associated with BRCA genes, and how UC San Francisco is advancing this rapidly developing field. CME credits available.

What is BRCA?

BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that normally have the role of providing instructions on repairing damage and preventing cancer in our bodies. Inherited mutations in these genes increase the risk of breast, ovarian, and several other cancers.
