About the Lung Cancer Project

Founded in 2012 by Genentech and the leading lung cancer advocacy organizations, The Lung Cancer Project is a movement to identify, understand and remove stigma and other barriers faced by people with lung cancer – so everyone receives the care they deserve.

The Lung Cancer Project's initial research findings around the bias and stigma toward people with lung cancer have sparked a national conversation around the social psychology of lung cancer and the underlying cause of low treatment rates.

What's Next?

We continue to conduct research to understand the barriers to care for people with lung cancer. Follow us on Twitter @LungProject for updates on new studies and research findings.
