Abstract


The Canadian Lung Cancer Conference 2014, held in Vancouver, British Columbia, was an opportunity for Canadian lung cancer researchers and treatment experts to meet and discuss current breakthroughs and paradigm shifts in the field. The full-day program featured lectures, discussion, and debates, with ample time for informal networking. We are already looking forward to next year’s meeting (scheduled for February 6, 2015), where we expect to discuss and reflect on some of the latest results and breakthroughs from both the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the European Society for Medical Oncology.
