I am delighted to introduce Dr. Stephen Lam as this month’s guest blogger.

Dr. Lam is the chair of the Provincial Lung Tumour Group, and directs the MDS-Rix Early Lung Cancer Detection and Translational Research Program at the BC Cancer Agency. His research interest is in early detection, chemoprevention and endoscopic therapy of lung cancer.

He has received numerous awards for his pioneering contributions to the field of early lung cancer diagnosis, including the Distinguished Achievement Award from the University of British Columbia and the Joseph Cullen Award for life-time scientific achievements in lung cancer prevention research from the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer. 

Dr. Lam will share why early detection is especially critical for lung cancer patients and some of the innovative work that the Lung Tumour Group is doing to develop predictive models and tools to discover the cancer at the earliest stage.  

Join me in reading along this month to learn more about Dr. Lam’s work.
