The 4th Annual Lung Cancer Symposium is specifically designed for specialists whose practice focuses on the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of lung cancer utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach.

Lung cancer is ranked as the leading cause of cancer-related mortality both in the US and worldwide.  However, there have been dramatic advances in our understanding of the benefits of careful screening of high-risk individuals, the molecular biology of lung cancer, novel targets of importance, and the development of targeted therapies.  The Course Directors, led by Dr. Mani S. Kavuru, MD, Professor of Medicine, Director of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and Director of the Jane and Leonard Korman Lung Center at Jefferson, have developed a multidisciplinary program, offering participants a unique opportunity to witness experts in the fields of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Surgery, and Oncology as they review the most current literature supporting how they manage and treat patients diagnosed with this disease.
