2020 Welcome and Keynote

Date: December 7-8, 2020

NLCRT Theme: Forging the New Frontier of Lung Cancer

Each year, the NLCRT membership, a nationwide coalition of over 140 professional and national societies, cancer centers, government agencies, research groups, advocacy and policy organizations, and corporate associates convenes to work together on our shared goal to create lung cancer survivors.

We thank all of NLCRT organizational members and non-members along with advocates, survivors and caregivers for attending the 4th Annual Meeting.

Featured Speaker

Harry de Koning, MD, PhD

Dept. of Public Health, Erasmus MC University Medical Center Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Henricus J de Koning is currently serving as Deputy Head and Professor of Public Health & Screening Evaluation, Department of Public Health, Erasmus MC University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Koning scientific contributions are in the areas of (1) designing, running and evaluating (often large-scale) multidisciplinary population-based randomized controlled screening trials to establish the efficacy of screening, (2) evaluating active (inter-)national screening programs and clinical tests to establish the effectiveness and (3) guiding public health policies on screening and primary prevention using predictions of favourable and unfavourable effects and the cost of interventions, based on micro-simulation modelling of the natural history of the disease, risk-prediction modelling and cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analyses. Our multidisciplinary and international research results in recommendations on whether or not to introduce screening, surveillance or other preventive interventions for specific diseases and on policy decisions to introduce it in specific ways, either at the population level or in (high risk) patients.
