Improved efficacy of research and education in the laboratory
Latner Thoracic Surgery Research Laboratories (LL) is one of the most successful research programs worldwide in lung cancer and lung transplant research. LL publishes one peer-reviewed publication every two weeks. On the translational front, this program has developed ground-breaking clinical applications of which Ex-vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) is a good example. EVLP is a revolutionary technique to assess and treat donor lungs and has been translated into clinical use in Canada and is now pending regulatory approval for use in the U.S.
