Research Funded by LCFA

In prior years, LCFA has awarded grants in conjunction with the IASLC which total over 3 million dollars.

LCFA’s class of 2018 award recipient Dr. Kellie Smith will perform a detailed analysis of the immune system and how it changes upon treatment in never-smoker NSCLC patients. Dr. Haiying Cheng will  investigate the frequencies of the RICTOR gene in general lung cancer patients, whether its presence predicts brain metastasis, and why it is associated with brain metastasis.

LCFA’s class of 2017 award recipients, Dr. Alice Berger and Dr. Christine Lovly are currently working on their projects studying lung cancer in never-smoking women and new treatments for small cell lung cancer, respectively.

A past LCFA grant recipient, Dr. Jessica Donington, currently serves on LCFA’s Scientific Advisory Board.

No research question gets answered without a financial cost.
