Welcome to the 10th Annual Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation Conference. Join us by registering to attend a significant milestone in CCF’s history. This year, we are honored to have Chiara Braconi and Laura Goff. serving as conference co-chairs. They have worked tirelessly to put together a remarkable agenda that includes sessions detailing the cholangiocarcinoma patient’s cancer journey like never before, including improvements in clinical trial matches from FDA drug approvals using patient data.

Chiara Braconi is a Lord-Kelvin-Adam-Smith Reader at the University of Glasgow and a Medical Oncologist at the Beatson Cancer Centre.
She received her MD degree from the University of Ancona (Italy) and completed her fellowship in Medical Oncology in 2006 before enrolling in a joint Ph.D. program between the University of Ancona and Ohio State University. After a time as a postdoctoral researcher at OSU, she moved to the University of Glasgow supported by a Scottish Senior Clinical Research Fellowship. In 2014, she joined the Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden Hospital in London as a clinical scientist where she integrated the study of molecular biology with clinical research to sustain a patient-oriented program in biliary-pancreatic cancers.
Since May 2019, she has been working at the University of Glasgow where she has developed a research platform on biliary cancers, connecting laboratory research and early clinical development to accelerate the field of predictive biomarkers and therapeutics.


Laura Williams Goff is a medical oncologist who specializes in gastrointestinal cancers. Dr. Goff received her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. She went on to complete a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Dr. Goff then moved to Vanderbilt University for fellowship training in Hematology and Oncology. She joined the faculty in the GI Oncology program at Vanderbilt in 2007 and completed a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation in 2008. Additionally, she has served as the Associate Director of the Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program at Vanderbilt since 2009. Dr. Goff is interested in developing the use of new therapeutics in gastrointestinal malignancies through clinical trials and translational research examining predictors of response to targeted agents.
