Discover the Latest Treatments

New lung cancer treatments such as immunotherapy and targeted treatments are being researched in clinical trials everyday Clinical trials are not only an opportunity to potentially improve patient outcomes and increase survival on an individual basis, but participation also pushes forward the science and research that we hope will make lung cancer a chronically managed disease within 10 years and ultimately a disease that is eradicated completely.

We encourage you to get involved and are proud to partner with digital health startup Antidote to make it easier than ever to connect with medical research and find opportunities to participate in these trials.

By answering a few questions using the search tool below, you can be matched to clinical trials that are right for you and in your area.


The ALCF Video Library features videos of past Lung Cancer Living Room sessions, news about the organization, footage of 5K runs and our annual gala event, patient stories, and much more.
