IASLC 2019 Small Cell Lung Cancer Meeting (#SCLC19)

GOAL AND PURPOSE:

The third biennial IASLC-sponsored Small Cell Lung Cancer Workshop will be held at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, April 3rd to 5th, 2019, and will focus on preclinical and clinical advances in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) research.  This includes basic research on oncogenesis and biology of disease, preclinical therapeutic research and highlights of ongoing clinical translation.  From its inception, this meeting's goals have included (1) to provide a “state-of-the-state” update on recent progress in small cell lung cancer research, (2) to establish a forward-looking perspective on key unanswered questions in the field and (3) to promote research collaboration among small cell lung cancer investigators.  

 
This international meeting will be dedicated to the memory of the recently deceased Dr. Adi Gazdar who, among his many areas of scientific impact, largely shaped the modern era of small cell lung cancer research.
