Committee Contributions and Milestones

Since its founding in 1982, the IASLC Pathology Committee has made a series of major contributions to the development of the discipline and the overall treatment of lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies.

In an effort to encapsulate this work, the IASLC has compiled an interactive infographic that traces both the work of the committee and select landmark events in the field of pathology.
