Chair of Committee
Education Committee coordinates the IASLC Academy
The Education Committee coordinates the IASLC Academy, a professional development opportunity for 15 early career physicians from around the world who are pursuing academic careers in thoracic oncology. Launched at the IASLC 2017 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in Yokohama, Japan, this innovative program is taught by prominent leaders in the field. Participants in the program receive mentoring to complete a project and to explore topics related to career development and research. Due to restrictions on in-person gatherings, the initial portion of the program will be conducted through a series of 4 virtual meetings throughout the year culminating in a live workshop during WCLC 2022.
