Lung cancer is the 5th most commonly diagnosed cancer and leading cause of cancer death in Australia.
Bringing modern genomics to the management of lung cancer in Queensland
This project piloted the use and assessed the impact of genomic testing in lung cancer treatment in Queensland.
The approaches used in the lung cancer project could be applied to other cancer types in the future.
Project leaders engage with and draw upon the expertise of partners within universities, research institutes and hospital and health services around Queensland.
