Our project seeks to 1) use previously collected lung cancer samples at our institution to find differences in gene expression and processing between African Americans and Caucasians and 2) implement a program to expand the engagement of African-American lung cancer patients in clinical research and tissue banking.
Our hope is that this research contributes to the understanding of biological reasons for racial disparity in NSCLC, and ultimately helps identify new ways to treat patients with lung cancer in the future.
