In Spotlight

Thyroid, Parathyroid & Neck Ultrasound Course, Apr 24, 2021

After being forced to cancel last year's event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Lisa Orloff, MD, FACS, FACE, will be hosting the American College of Surgeons Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Neck Ultrasound Course in conjunction with the Otolaryngology Programs at UCSF, UC Irvine and UCSD. 

While the didactic portion will be held virtually, the hands-on portion will be held in-person at each respective institution. We are so excited to be able to introduce this topic to residents, fellows and physicians in this setting as we all make the transition from a world of completely remote learning into one that offers opportunities to share knowledge in new, creative ways!


Dr. Sunwoo laboratory studies the interaction between tumor cells and the host immune system. Current research includes: understanding the role of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) and NK cells in the context of cancer; understanding how epigenetic changes in the tumor microenvironment modulate immune responses; and understanding tumor-intrinsic mechanisms driving immune response and/or evasion.
