We hope that those of you who have enjoyed summer season have had a good and healthy vacation period!
Many new things have recently happened within IASLC. IASLC has now been approved as a CME provider! That is a significant achievement for our organization and gives our Educational department much more flexibility in planning future activities.
Many important messages/announcements will be found in this Newsletter: The search for a new CEO for the organization has started and has been announced. As mentioned earlier, Dr. Paul Bunn Jr, MD, after many years in office, having brought this organization to another level, is stepping down at the WLCC in Sydney 2013. The IASLC Board is searching for his successor (see below). The search for a Chief Editor for our journal JTO is now in its final round.
We are proud to announce in this Newsletter the new IASLC Fellowship/Young Investigator Award winners. IASLC’s Fellowship/Young Investigators awards are important activities for our organization and many investigators have over the years been able to start very successful careers in lung cancer translational/clinical science through our awards.
It is with great pride that I inform you that the IASLC Office has moved into the new IASLC Headquarters, located adjacent to the University of Colorado Hospital Campus.
