Biodesign hosts international consortium on screening for lung cancer
Date:1/24/2011

reened thus far, making it the largest lung cancer screening study of its kind. The data is pooled with worldwide collaborators and contributes to their ongoing research regarding best practices for CT screening.

To explore possible synergies between two lung-cancer focused groups, the International Lung Cancer Consortium will hold its annual meeting concurrent to the I-ELCAP event. The consortium is an international group of lung cancer researchers, established in 2004 with the aim of sharing comparable data from ongoing lung cancer case-control and cohort studies. Organizers anticipate 150 lung cancer experts to attend.

"Holding these conferences together for the first time should expand perspectives of both groups and catapult the research forward," said Dr. Yankelevitz.

The I-ELCAP effort is now part of a lung cancer demonstration project for the new ASU Biosignatures Initiative directed by former Fulton School of Engineering Dean Deirdre Meldrum. The Biodesign-led initiative will continue to be at the forefront of a multipronged strategy for the early detection of lung cancer to save lives.

This is ASU's second year as host to the prestigious biannual conference. Among the agenda topics for the 2011 conference are: minimizing harms related to screening, understanding the results of the National Lung Screening Trial, development of future collaborative research.

The main venue for the two-day meetings will be the Millennium Resort Scottsdale McCormick Ranch, 7401 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, Ariz.
