My work was started in 2011.  I have always been engaged in the study of lung cancer, and my focus is on early diagnosis.  It’s disappointing that lots of patients cannot be diagnosed earlier; the 5 year survival rate remains low.  Therefore, more efforts are needed to be taken and more team work is required.  The IASLC/BI Chinese research fellowship award project provides a precious opportunity for lots of Chinese doctors and researchers.  I am sure that a solid foundation will be set for my further studies of translational research in lung cancer.
