Professor Rajkumar Savai, MD, was awarded the Thoracic Oncology “Mid-Career Achievement Award” for his significant and meaningful contribution to thoracic oncology research at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the American Thoracic Society (ATS) International Conference in Washington, DC, USA.

Rajkumar Savai aims to understand how the lung microenvironmental niche drives tumor initiation and progression. Of particular interest is the identification of specific targets that inhibit or reverse tumor niche maintenance and the functional competence of tumor cells. The long-term goal of the Savai lab is to translate tumor microenvironment-based therapeutic approaches into clinical trials to stop lung cancer in its tracks.
