Free Webinar Series:

Testing and Targeting Tumors with RET Alterations

The program is designed to offer an overview of research activities in this area and review the current status and future prospect of testing and targeting various tumors with RET alterations.
Chair: Fabrice Barlesi
Speakers: Frédérique Penault-Llorca, Carmen Belli, Alexander Drilon

RET positive lung cancer is caused by a rare mutation of the RET gene that causes cancer cells to grow out of control.

This “driver mutation” occurs in about 2% of non-small cell lung cancer patients and is more common among young never-smokers, often the mothers of school-age children.

In many cases, it isn’t diagnosed until after the cancer has spread to other organs throughout the body. The Happy Lungs Project is dedicated to curing this disease.

Help us improve the lives of tens-of-thousands of RET positive survivors and their families.
