Nearly 200 researchers and scientists from 20 different countries participated in the 2005 AACR Special Conference on the Molecular Pathogenesis of Lung Cancer. The conference focused on the many new important translational advances dealing with all aspects of lung cancer that promise a rational approach to stopping this deadly disease. Plenary sessions focused on therapeutics and prevention; genetics, nicotine addiction, and smoking cessation treatment; mouse models; genetic epidemiology; expression profiling, proteomics, and biomarkers; and novel screening approaches. Participants included leading transdisciplinary investigators in all of these fields seeking to translate findings to and from the clinic and the laboratory. Poster sessions allowed investigators to present and discuss their latest research in an informal setting.
