Dr. Glen Goss recognized for lifetime achievement in lung cancer

March 29, 2018

Dr. Glen Goss recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Lung Cancer Conference in Vancouver. This award recognizes his leadership in improving care for people with lung cancer, both as an oncologist and as a researcher. Dr. Goss has led many international clinical trials, with a focus on developing personalized, targeted therapies. His research has contributed to the approval of multiple new drugs for lung cancer. Dr. Goss also collaborates widely with basic scientists to translate discoveries into clinical therapies. “When a treatment doesn’t work, we want to know why it doesn’t work and we want to answer the question in order to bring better treatments to the patients,” said Dr. Goss in this video for the Tender Loving Research Campaign. “This is why we are passionate about personalized medicine - where the treatment is more precise, we know more about the patient, we know more about their tumours, and we can develop personalized care.”
