Hear from Dr. David Carbone of The Ohio State University, one of the leaders in lung cancer research, who will answer questions posed by LCFA President Kim Norris and Executive Director Jim Baranksi.

“I find it a beautiful thing about how science intersects medicine today. Where we can analyze genes and pick a drug based on a gene or a profile, give it to a patient. And go from being in pain and shortness of breath with potentially weeks or months to be back to a normal quality of life often with just an oral pill everyday. ”

— Dr. David Carbone, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH

As a scientist, Dr. Carbone enjoys trying to push that frontier to find new targets and new ways of optimizing treatment – that it’s not just a pipe dream. Don’t miss his discussions on World Lung Cancer Day.

Join us to learn the latest and greatest in lung cancer research such as:

  • New tools that alter lives of lung cancer surgery patients for the better
  • Exciting, new treatments for Small Cell Lung Cancer
  • The importance of improving minority participation in clinical trials
  • The impact of perioperative therapies

Lung Cancer Foundation of America is proud to support World Lung Cancer Day by raising awareness through a social media takeover by our dedicated Speakers Bureau and Young Investigators.

They will be sharing their stories of how they use their lungs and how lung cancer research has made a difference. We thank them for their personal commitment and how their actions will illustrate this year’s theme so well.

New research, diagnosis, and treatment breakthroughs in the last 10 years have brought new hope to patients and their families.

LCFA has been instrumental in developing a continuing public dialogue. Through annual media campaigns, LCFA has been dedicated to education and research – the route to the early diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and, hopefully, the cure.
