The ILCF has been a very important stepping stone in my career. I am very thankful for receiving the John Fisher Legacy Fellowship, aimed at improving outcomes for patients diagnosed with early-stage lung cancer. This award has provided me the foundation to develop a sophisticated platform to address very granular level questions regarding patterns of recurrence, molecular features associated with relapse, and optimal surveillance strategies. I intend to build on this platform to continue my work in helping patients with lung cancer.
