We are a team of highly dedicated clinicians and scientists at the UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center on the Mt. Zion Medical Campus in San Francisco. The Anal Neoplasia Center for Research and Education, led by Dr. Joel Palefsky, is devoted to performing research that seeks to promote awareness of and screening for HSIL and anal cancer, identify the causes of HSIL and anal cancer, and develop new and better therapies for these diseases.
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the ANCHOR study team has advised local site staff to contact ANCHOR participants who are scheduled to be seen in the next 4 weeks about whether they should come in for their appointment. If you do not hear from your site’s study staff, please reach out to them. If you are waiting to be screened for the ANCHOR study, please be patient- we WILL see you as soon as we possibly can, once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please contact your local ANCHOR site if you have any questions or concerns.
