Our Researchers and Teams
Lung Cancer Researchers
A major focus of our research program is to foster projects designed to find cures and prevent and relieve suffering associated with lung cancer. Our 2016-2017 Research Awards Nationwide includes 26 awardees whose studies target lung cancer. See what a few of our researchers are working on the research we support.
Lung Cancer Expert Medical Advisory Panel
The Lung Cancer Expert Medical Advisory Panel provides the American Lung Association with strategic advice on critical lung cancer science and lung cancer-related issues. The panel members share their knowledge about trends in prevention, early detection and novel treatments; provide guidance on gaps in patient needs; review American Lung Association's clinician tools; and contribute to the association's overall lung cancer policy strategy. We are grateful for the support they provide to LUNG FORCE and all of the American Lung Association's lung cancer efforts. Meet our lung cancer expert medical advisory panel.
