ALTG Workshop Report
ALTG workshops are an important way for the group to review the pipeline of ALTG study ideas and a valuable opportunity for members to meet face-to-face. The “future clinical trial plans” workshop in November was no exception, with fifty-one participants contributing to Working Groups for Screening and Diagnosis, Early NSCLC, Advanced NSCLC, SCLC, Mesothelioma and Supportive Care. Lead ideas were presented in plenary and members of each Working Group are now working on several new concepts for consideration by the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC). From these, the SAC will identify a selection to be further developed for funding submission. Thanks to the workshop organisers and Working Group Chairs for facilitating this process: Fraser Brims, Haryana Dhillon, Michael Franco, Steven Kao, Peey Sei Kok, Craig Lewis, Matthew Links, Sue-Anne McLachlan, Michael Millward, Paul Mitchell, Anna Nowak, Nick Pavlakis, Matthew Peters, Martin Stockler, Subo Thavaneswaran and Annette Tognela. Feedback from the meeting was extremely positive, with participants highlighting the value of time spent networking and meeting in person. In 2016 we will focus on not only brainstorming new trial ideas but also discussing more developed concepts in detail.
