Policy Driven Research

Our extensive policy and advocacy work leads to critical legislation and policy initiatives that are aimed at increasing federal reserach funding for lung cancer and ensuring a comprehensive plan of action to increase survival. 

  • Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act: The passage of this historic legislation was the first of its kind to make lung cancer a national public health priority. 
  • Lung Cancer Research Program: The creation of this program within the Department of Defense has led to $102M for lung cancer research to date.
