Best of WCLC 2013

The Best of WCLC is an educational initiative of IASLC designed to engage researchers and practitioners unable to attend the World Conference on Lung Cancer. The program condenses the timeliest scientific and educational topics from multiple disciplines into a single-day event (typically 6-8 hours of educational sessions). Presented by regional teams recruited from multiple disciplines, the event brings the top abstracts as chosen by the experts on the WCLC Scientific Committee to professionals engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and related malignancies in a concise presentation.

There are numerous planned sites around the world. Please check back as information continues to be updated.
