2017 ALCF-IASLC Joint Fellowship Award for the Early Detection of Lung Cancer Request For Applications
The Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF), in collaboration with the International Association for the Study or Lung Cancer (IASLC) is pleased to announce their second joint Fellowship Award to support novel, innovative and translational research with potential of high clinical impact on the early detection of lung cancer.
The joint, international ALCF-IASLC Fellowship award was first instituted in 2015 by the two organizations to support an early career scientist’s training and research on early detection modalities in an established lung cancer research laboratory of their choice, anywhere in the world. ALCF and IASLC have jointly funded an early career scientist in 2016, and are now pleased to announce the request for applications for the second joint award.
The second, joint ALCF-IASLC Fellowship Award for the Early Detection of Lung Cancer aims to identify brilliant, young “out of the box” thinkers/researchers who can deliver a meaningful and measurable result for the early detection of lung cancer that has a high probability of near-term benefit to lung cancer patients or individuals at risk, as well as to provide an opportunity for young researchers to learn new cutting-edge technologies and take this expertise back to their home country.
