S03 E11 Road to a Cure - Dr. Hope Rugo
Show Notes

The podcast Road to a Cure team meets up with renowned hematologist oncologist, Dr. Hope Rugo of USCF's Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center. Dr. Rugo is also co-director of UCSF's breast cancer clinical trials program. She is the principal investigator for several clinical trials of potential new therapies. She is also an investigator with the Bay Area's SPORE (Specialized Programs of Research Excellence) on breast cancer. 

Producer and Co-host, Victoria Goldberg, and Co-host Dr. Ellen Landsberger, take some time to unpack Dr. Rugo's view of what a "cure" looks like for metastatic cancers, the exciting leadership shown with dosing, and a very clear review of the latest treatments and upcoming clinical trials that could help those with both triple-negative and hormone-positive breast cancer.

The Road to a Cure series continues each Monday covering interviews with leading oncologists around the country on the concept of a cure for Metastatic Breast Cancer until the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in December.  Join us!
