ALTG awarded $12 million in funding

The ALTG is pleased to announce over $12 million in funding has been successfully awarded to ALTG, NHMRC Clinical Trial Centre and the Australian Genomic Cancer Medicine Centre for the ASPiRATION project. In this ground-breaking precision medicine study, led by ALTG President A/Prof Nick Pavlakis and ALTG Scientific Advisory Committee Chair, Prof Ben Solomon, ASPiRATION will explore the benefit of routine comprehensive genomic profiling in 1000 newly-diagnosed metastatic, non-squamous, NSCLC patients in Australia. The enhanced genomic profiling will assist in personalising patient care by matching patients to targeted treatments as early as possible to improve patient outcomes.

5th ALTG Lung Cancer Preceptorship

5th ALTG Lung Cancer Preceptorship

18-19 October 2019 RACV Club, Melbourne

The Lung Cancer Preceptorship was again a highly successful educational event with its focus on critical appraisal of key practice-changing clinical trials across the spectrum of thoracic cancers and discussion of the latest advances in treatment of lung cancer. Anecdotal feedback was excellent, and both attendees and preceptors commented on the high standard of presentations.
