Prof Jacek Jassem - University of Gdansk, Poland

Prof Jassem talks about advances in the treatment of lung cancer and the number of options that are now available to patients. More effective and safer surgery allows more patients to be treated and advances in imaging techniques has made localised treatment possible at higher doses, increasing survival rates. Prof Jassem discusses optimal chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimes and the search for targeting agents to radio-sensitise tumours.
