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.
