My friend George Simon, the Medical Director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at the Fox Chase Cancer Institute, is one of the leading experts in clinical research on the molecular correlates of the activity of chemotherapy in patients with lung cancer. We sat down together at the end of the recent World Conference on Lung Cancer to discuss some of this work and the general state of this growing field of research.

Here in audio version of the presentation, a pdf file of the figures, a transcript of our conversation, and the video version with the figures synchronized with the discussion.
