The progress we make gives hope to lung cancer patients in Indiana and around the world. Your support makes this possible.
Our goal is to answer important questions about improving the lives of lung cancer patients – questions others may not be asking. The answers we find expand treatment options, increase survival and enhance patients’ quality of life. With your help, IU researchers can answer critical questions more quickly. Your gift might help our team to explore drug combinations that have fewer side effects or see whether immunotherapy might benefit patients with early-stage disease. Your generosity may also help us evaluate biomarkers that tell us if a person’s cancer has been eradicated and treatment can end.
