It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of two prominent and dedicated IASLC members this month.
Mark Green, MD: Mark Ronald Green, M.D., 70, an internationally renowned expert in lung cancer research and treatment, and member of IASLC for more than 20 years, passed away on February 23, 2015 following a battle with plasma cell leukemia. As remembered by colleague, Dr. Rogerio Lilenbaum “Mark Green was the consummate researcher – passionate, inquisitive, analytical, and unrelenting in the pursuit of excellence. Never one to compromise on the fundamentals, his contributions transformed the treatment of lung cancer and directly impacted on patients’ lives. Mark inspired an entire generation of clinical researchers and his premature departure leaves a vacuum in the hearts of everyone he has touched. He will be remembered as one of the greats - a true mentor and a mensch.” Read More

WCLC 2015: Patient Advocacy Travel Awards
The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) has opened the application process for lung cancer patient advocates to apply for Advocacy Travel Awards. Awardees receive a travel stipend, free conference registration, up to four nights’ accommodations, and a free IASLC Membership for 2016. “For the World Conference on Lung Cancer in 2015, we hope to engage and receive more applications from other regions of the world, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. We know that the cost of travel can be a deterrent, and we hope these travel awards will encourage more survivors and patient advocates from around the world to apply” says Glenda Colburn, chair of the IASLC Patient Advocacy Committee and a Director at Lung Foundation Australia.
