Lung Cancer Modeling
The CISNET Lung Working Group (LWG) was initiated in the second round of CISNET. In the current round of funding (CISNET IV), the LWG consists of six modeling groups and a coordinating center. The groups develop and apply population models for lung cancer, quantifying the impact of tobacco control and CT screening on lung cancer and all-cause mortality. In this current funding round, the LWG is extending existing CISNET lung models to investigate the synergistic impacts of tobacco control policies and lung cancer screening in the US and in middle-income nations, focusing on disparities in smoking behavior and lung cancer risk.
