Medical Advisory Board

From its inception, the Lung Cancer Research Foundation has been privileged to have a Medical Advisory Board comprised of renowned, multi-disciplinary scientists and physicians whose expertise spans all lung cancer specialties. Each board member is affiliated with a major cancer center and can apply his or her knowledge to identifying cutting-edge proposals that in future years will make major contributions toward the prevention and treatment of lung cancer.
