Stephen B. Gruber, MD, PhD, MPH, director of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, and John D. Carpten, PhD, chair and visiting professor of translational genomics and director of the USC Institute for Translational Genomics, addressed guests at the USC Norris Friends and Family Luncheon on Sept. 29.

Carpten’s presentation educated the group on the life-saving cancer treatment plans that can be achieved through genetic testing. Through personalized gene sequencing, doctors at USC Norris are able to tailor therapy regimens to each specific individual, providing the most beneficial options and outcomes for our patients.

Donors, volunteers and friends of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center attended the luncheon.
