LCRF will fund two research projects with a focus on overcoming disparities in lung cancer. We encourage applications from investigators of all career levels and on a wide variety of disparities-related topics including but not limited to the following:
  • Gender disparities in lung cancer burden
  • Causes and risk factors for lung cancer among never smokers
  • Influence of social and biological risk factors on lung cancer outcomes, access to and use of care, and quality of care
  • Genetic and gene-environment interactions
  • Interactions and contributions of multiple factors (e.g. smoking, genetics, environment, societal factors) to disparities in lung cancer outcomes
  • Contribution of healthcare access and quality to disparities in outcomes
  • Disparities related to other factors such as geography, socioeconomic status, and age
