"The mesothelioma committee is charged with initiating ideas and projects relating to all aspects of mesothelioma including but not limited to screening, diagnosis, and established and novel therapies. There has been an explosion of information regarding the genomics and the tumor microenvironment for this disease, so the experts on the committee are tremendously excited. International cooperation is always necessary in rare diseases, and the formation of this committee is a great undertaking by the IASLC."
