He was then recruited to join the faculty at UCSF as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology and Oncology, and was an active member in Prostate Cancer Program and the Cancer Immunotherapy Program at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. He received multiple peer-reviewed grants to support his work in patient-centered prostate cancer research, including from the Prostate Cancer Foundation, and served as principle investigator for multiple clinical trials, and is the author of numerous publications. He served as the clinical leader of the UCSF Kidney Cancer program and as a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Kidney Cancer Guidelines Panel. During his time at UCSF, Won was the associate program director of the UCSF Hematology/Oncology Training Program, and led efforts to bring diversity, equity and inclusion into the training program’s recruitment strategy, and helped to establish a new Hematology/Oncology training program at Kaiser Permanente.
