Research & Education

From novel research in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology to the International Lung Cancer Foundation Research Awards, we support and showcase lung cancer research in all forms.
Research & Education

Every project that the IASLC dedicates itself to revolves around lung cancer research across specialties and from around the globe. Whether that novel research is showcased in a new multi-day all-virtual symposium, a podcast, or a webinar with expert panelists who can put the data in context or in an IASLC Lung Cancer News (ILCN) article that discusses the nuances of daily clinical application, we strive to support and promote practice-changing research, and providing education to all of our volunteers and members.

Research Committees & Projects

Across specialties, our research-based committees work to tackle global disparities in patient care and gaps in education related to thoracic malignancies, especially lung cancer.



The Journal of Thoracic Oncology (JTO) is 4th out of 64 respiratory medicine journals and 13th of 241 oncology journals. Its companion, open-access journal, the Journal of Thoracic Oncology Clinical and Research Reports (JTO CRR), has published 27 manuscripts in the first two issues.
