Several hundred of scientists will gather in San Diego at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina during Jan. 8-11, 2012, for the AACR-IASLC Joint Conference on Molecular Origins of Lung Cancer: Biology, Therapy and Personalized Medicine.
The conference is jointly sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
