14th Annual International Lung Cancer Congress®

14th Annual International Lung Cancer Congress®

Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach
Huntington Beach, CA
July 25-27, 2013


The 14th Annual International Lung Cancer Congress® will provide current, practical information on the management of lung cancer, as well as a look at the novel agents and strategies that will shape the future of lung cancer therapy.

Join leading international and national faculty as they address critical topics in lung cancer staging, personalized therapy, and the latest clinical data impacting the treatment of lung cancer. Cutting-edge lectures, panel discussions, multidisciplinary tumor boards, and interactive question-and-answer sessions will provide a unique opportunity for participants to engage with faculty as they share their perspectives and personal experiences on the clinical challenges and ongoing controversies in lung cancer management. A recurring session will also highlight clinical research activity of Cooperative Groups in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical, surgical and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of patients with lung cancer.  Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of lung cancer are also invited to attend.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:
  • Determine correct tumor stage according to the 7th Edition of TNM lung cancer staging
  • Select evidence-based therapeutic regimens in patients with early-stage and locally advanced NSCLC
  • Formulate frontline and subsequent therapy for patients with metastatic NSCLC based on biomarker status and patient/tumor characteristics
  • Integrate clinical data on maintenance therapy in NSCLC to determine which patients would benefit most from a maintenance regimen
  • Outline current therapeutic approaches for patients with SCLC and mesothelioma
  • Evaluate data on new agents and approaches in development for lung cancer
  • Recommend appropriate patients with lung cancer for clinical trial enrollment


  • State of the Art: Multimodality Therapy
  • Surgical Approaches to Locally Advanced NSCLC
  • Optimizing the Dose and Schedule of Radiation Therapy in Stage III NSCLC
  • Integration of Targeted Agents Into Combined Modality Therapy for NSCLC
  • State-of-the-Art Treatment of Advanced Lung Cancer
  • Antiangiogenic Agents
  • ALK Inhibitors
  • c-Met Inhibitors
  • Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer
  • HSP90 as a Therapeutic Target

  • Sixth Annual Addario Foundation Keynote Lecture

PER® has chosen to partner with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) for the 14th Annual International Lung Cancer Congress®.
IASLC is the only global organization dedicated to the study of lung cancer. Founded in 1972, the association's membership includes more than 3,000 lung cancer specialists in 80 countries. IASLC members work to enhance the understanding of lung cancer among scientists, members of the medical community and the public.

BJALCF is the first international collaborative entity of its kind, raising over $6 million for Lung Cancer research. BJALCF’s focus is on projects promising progress through early detection, genetic testing, and drug discovery with patient-focused outcomes. Their ultimate goal is to increase the low survival rate of lung cancer by becoming the largest source of non-profit funding dedicated to turning lung cancer into a manageable chronic disease. Since 2008, BJALCF has sponsored a key-note address and provided overall support of the International Lung Cancer Congress.
