Join Peter Kuhn, a founding member of the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Biosciences, as he discusses breakthrough technology in the fight against cancer. Kuhn serves on President Biden’s “cancer moonshot” initiative which is working to reduce the national death rate from cancer by 50%.


In this live discussion with distinguished cancer researcher Amy Ross PhD ’86, Kuhn will share the latest science and the future of early breast cancer detection using a simple blood draw. The simplicity of the blood draw with the sophistication of today’s understanding of breast cancer through advanced mathematics can bring confidence to the 70 million women in the U.S. who are at risk of breast cancer. Bring your questions and learn how USC Dornsife is making a difference in the fight against cancer.



  • Peter Kuhn, Dean’s Professor of Biological Sciences, USC Dornsife and cancer physicist
  • Amy A. Ross PhD ’86, cancer researcher (ret.), USC Board of Trustees member
