Lung Cancer Workshop XI:
Tobacco-Induced Disease: Advances in Policy, Early Detection and Management
DATES: Friday, May 16, 2014 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM
  Saturday, May 17, 2014 8:00 AM to Noon
WORKSHOP LOCATION: Mount Sinai Medical Center
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Davis Auditorium, 2nd Floor
1470 Madison Avenue (between 101st  & 102nd Streets)
New York, New York • USA

Since 2004, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has hosted a series of annual workshops focused on the application of high resolution CT imaging data to lung cancer drug development.  The 2014 workshop will continue to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas on the application of quantitative CT imaging to early lung cancer management as well as for discussing policy and advocacy for lung cancer screening done responsibly.
Workshop XI will focus on two key areas:
  • Defining strategies to drive innovation in pre-competitive quantitative research on the use of imaging to assess new therapies for management of early lung cancer
  •  Discussion of a process to implement a national program to provide high quality lung cancer CT imaging.  (Representatives of the Quantitative Imaging Biomarker Alliance, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, the American College of Radiology, the Lung Cancer Alliance and a number of other organizations will participate in these discussions).
This unique forum brings together key leaders in lung cancer early detection and development of new therapies for management of early-stage disease:
  • Academic and community-based oncologists
  • Pulmonologists and radiologists
  • Experts in photonics and software development
  • Federal policymakers and regulators
  • Patient advocates
  • Pharmaceutical and medical imaging industries
Workshop XI will continue to build on the considerable progress achieved in earlier Workshops and address the recent cost/benefit analysis of lung cancer screening as well as explore the health policy implications of moving quantitative imaging to more efficient early detection of lung cancer in high risk populations.

In 2014, The Lung Cancer Workshop will immediately precede the I-ELCAP 30th International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer, which will also take place at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai on Saturday, May 17, 2014, beginning at 9:30 am and Sunday, May 18th from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 
These conferences are separate entities so you must register separately for each if you plan on attending.
