AACR & IASLC to host molecular origins of lung cancer conference


The second AACR-IASLC Joint Conference on Molecular Origins of Lung Cancer: Biology, Therapy and Personalized Medicine will bring together scientists to share the latest findings in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the nation's leading cause of cancer and cancer mortality.

The conference, scheduled for Jan. 8-11, 2012, in San Diego, is jointly sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
