NYU Langone Health’s Thoracic Medical Oncology Program at Perlmutter Cancer Center has become 1 of 23 institutions and programs selected to comprise the American Association for Thoracic Surgery’s Thoracic Surgery Oncology Group (TSOG), a North American thoracic surgery clinical trials network.
“Over the last few years, Perlmutter Cancer Center has recruited some of the top surgical, medical, pulmonary, and radiation oncologists in the country,” says Harvey I. Pass, MD, the Stephen E. Banner Professor of Thoracic Oncology in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery and surgical chief of thoracic oncology at Perlmutter Cancer Center. “Selection as a member of the TSOG highlights Perlmutter Cancer Center’s position as a major cancer center in the United States.”
Membership in TSOG will allow enhanced collaborations in the translational and clinical trial component of Perlmutter Cancer Center’s research portfolio, which has been nurtured by Kwok-Kin Wong, MD, PhD, the Anne Murnick Cogan and David H. Cogan Professor of Oncology in the Department of Medicine and director of the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology.
