A Sea of Presentations, and Those That Are Making Waves

By Brendon Stiles

October 8, 2018

I arrived in Toronto for the World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) prepared for a whirlwind of activity. With committee and personal meetings to attend, as well as a handful of presentations to give, I barely had time to stop and reflect upon the remarkable collection of people that were gathered there. WCLC is relatively unique in that it brings together individuals treating and interested in lung cancer from numerous specialties: oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, scientists, and others. The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) who organizes WCLC has also wisely added patients and advocates to that mix, enabling a palpable focus on meaningful outcomes and on lung cancer advocacy. All of these stakeholders come together to cover the entire spectrum of lung cancer. However, within this vast ocean of presentations, it can feel a bit like paddling a rowboat to get from place to place to try to grasp the big picture of what is happening in the field.

It was a privilege to present our clinical research, “Do the surgical results in the National Lung Screening Trial reflect modern thoracic surgical practice?” at the 98th American Association of Thoracic Surgery (AATS) Annual Meeting last week in San Diego. I was pleased that the AATS recognized the importance of our message by placing the presentation in one of the featured plenary sessions.
