Globally, lung cancer is the single most lethal cancer, accounting for 1.8 million deaths last year, yet research funding devoted to lung cancer pales in comparison to other cancer types. In this episode of Lung Cancer Considered, host Dr. Stephen Liu discusses how global advocacy might play a role in addressing this gap. His guest is Dr. Anne-Marie Baird, a cancer researcher at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. Dr. Baird is the former Chair of the IASLC Communications Committee, and the newly appointed President of Lung Cancer Europe, a European platform for lung cancer advocacy.
