Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute Announces Diagnostic Screening and Clinical Research Collaborations With Response Genetics, Inc.
Date:7/31/2009

money for research and development was not a barrier, and a true collaboration could be achieved, what would you require to achieve a cure for Lung Cancer in the least amount of time?"

The overwhelming consensus response was to establish a national, virtual Lung Cancer institute -- an honest third-party broker that would develop and direct high-quality tissue specimen repositories, data systems, and fostered collaborations. As a result, Lung Cancer survivor Bonnie J. Addario and her husband Tony Addario established ALCMI in early 2008 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with Mr. Steven Young assuming the role of President and Chief Operating Officer in the third quarter of that year.

Mission Statement:

The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute is dedicated to catalyzing and accelerating the discovery, development and delivery of new and more effective treatment options for Lung Cancer patients. Over 450 people die a day of Lung Cancer in the United States and 1.3 million annually worldwide. Lung Cancer surpassed breast cancer as the number one killer of women in 1987. Sixty percent of Lung Caner is now diagnosed in NEVER smokers and former smokers and it kills more people than breast, prostate, colon, liver, melanoma and kidney cancers combined.

ALCMI's Scientific Leadership Board:

David Carbone, M.D., Ph.D., (Vanderbilt University), David Gandara, M.D., (University of California, Davis), David Jablons, M.D., (University of California, San Francisco), Pasi Janne, M.D., Ph.D., (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), Ite Laird-Offringa, Ph.D., (University of Southern California), Harvey Pass, M.D., (New York University) and Rafael Rosell, M.D., Ph.D., (Catalan Institute of Oncology, Spain).

ALCMI is currently in negotiations with several community medical centers, thus further expanding the breadth, depth and diversity of ALCMI's Lung
