AACR – J&J Lung Cancer Innovative Science Grants: Cutting-Edge Approaches to Cut Down Cancer Risk

AACR – J&J Lung Cancer Innovative Science Grants: Cutting-Edge Approaches to Cut Down Cancer Risk

Lung cancer remains the number one cause of cancer-related death. This persistent dismal prognosis has been largely attributed to late-stage diagnosis, when 5-year survival rates are less than 5%. Although the potential of lung cancer screening to reduce lung cancer-related mortality has been demonstrated, there remains a need for more effective and less invasive early detection methods. The AACR-Johnson & Johnson Lung Cancer Innovative Science Grants are fueling...
