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.
