Lung Cancer Research Retreat

Stony Brook University Cancer Center 
Lung Cancer Retreat 2020

October 1, 2020

Virtual Retreat via Zoom

The focus of the retreat is on lung cancer research at Stony Brook Cancer Center and opportunities for collaboration. Presentations will span research activities across the disease continuum and include basic, translational, clinical and population science.

Topics include: chemoprevention, biomarkers, drug resistance, early detection and clinical pathways to improve patient outcomes. 

This year, the retreat will have a special emphasis on the disproportionate burden of lung cancer in certain patient groups.

We are excited to host Dr. Patricia Rivera as our keynote speaker to present,
