Research

Since 2008, Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina has funded almost $2.26 million in lung cancer research. The goal of Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina's research program is to further the development of local lung cancer care and research programs across the state of North Carolina. By funding research activities of fellows and young investigators we will help to jump start their careers and encourage their continuing involvement in the field of lung cancer.
