Our Chairs Invite You To Join!

Following the great success of the virtual International Lung Cancer Summit (ILCS), we look forward to welcoming you to the 4th edition of this interactive hybrid meeting. Similar to recent years, the ILCS will showcase the latest discoveries and advances performed towards the treatment of lung cancer. The conference will leverage digital channels to provide exceptional outreach and opportunities for delegates from Medical Offices, Universities and Institutes to interact with world-class Medical Oncologists and Industry Professionals working in the field of lung cancer treatment and research.
The ILCS constitutes an ideal platform to share knowledge and seamless treatment procedures with our local and international speakers from the USA, Spain, Ireland, Israel, South Africa, Austria and Switzerland.
