Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer develops when cells become abnormal and grow out of control in one or both of a person’s lungs. It is the world’s most lethal cancer. In healthy lungs, normal lung tissue cells reproduce and develop into healthy lung tissue. With lung cancer, abnormal cells reproduce rapidly and never grow into normal lung tissue. Lumps of cancer cells form tumours which disrupt the functioning of the lung.

Current Research Activities

Our research programs explore new ways to prevent and better understand lung cancer and improve its diagnosis and management.
