The Murtha Cancer Center recently hosted a Lung Cancer Research Summit on November 14, 2014 to bring together researchers and clinicians from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and our Federal Partners to include the Uniformed Services University and the National Cancer Institute. The Lung Cancer Research Summit provided clinicians and researchers with updates on the latest developments in the field of lung cancer including: early detection, advances in surgical techniques, molecular analysis, targeted therapies in development, treatment options to include advanced radiation, endobronchial techniques, and palliative therapy; and focused on the multidisciplinary components required for screening and diagnosis for both early stage and advanced lung cancer.
