$40,000 USD


 The purpose of International Association of the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) is to promote the study of the etiology, the epidemiology, the prevention, the diagnosis, the treatment and all other aspects of lung cancer and to disseminate information about lung cancer to the members of the Association to the medical community at large, and to the public. The IASLC provides fellowship and young investigator awards in all aspects of lung cancer research.

Funding for IASLC fellowship and young investigator awards provides for training of fellows and young investigators who wish to pursue a career in diagnosis, treatment, laboratory research or other aspects of lung tumors.

The IASLC/PCF research funding provides training for young investigators who wish to pursue a career in lung cancer prevention or translational research. To ensure adequate exposure in the discipline, IASLC requires that its awardees take one course per year in one of the following doctoral programs in an area in which the candidate has not received prior training:

  • Biostatistics
  • Epidemiology
  • Health Promotion
  • Public Health
  • Behavioral Science
  • Clinical Trials 

The work proposed by the fellow must be conducted at the PI’s institution. Funds will generally be granted to non-profit institutions or organizations.
