Professor Corinne Faivre-Finn

Improving treatments for lung cancer

At the Christie Hospital in Manchester, Professor Corinne Faivre-Finn specialises in treating lung cancer. She is leading several important clinical trials, including CONVERT and LungART, to find out the best ways of combining radiotherapy and chemotherapy to treat the disease.

She is also testing more targeted ways of giving radiotherapy, called IMRT and SABR, to find out if they are effective for lung cancer patients who can’t have surgery.

Despite lung cancer being the most common cancer in the world, survival is poor and has changed little over the years. Clinical trials like the ones Professor Faivre-Finn is leading are essential to improve this situation and keep families together for longer.
