Dr. Devarakonda was awarded the IASLC Fellowship award for 2015-2016.  Dr. Devarakonda has been involved in lung cancer research for nearly 6 years, and has authored several peer reviewed manuscripts, abstracts and chapters in the field.  His work involves analysis of cancer genomic data to identify variants of interest and functionally validating these variants in the laboratory and exploring their target ability.  Dr. Devarakonda’s career objective is to eventually employ this model to identify potential targets and novel therapies in lung cancer, and translate them to the clinic through well-designed clinical trials.
