A/Prof Zarnie Lwin, ASM Convenor

It is my absolute privilege and honour to be Convenor for the TOGA ASM 2023.

Building on the huge success of the past two TOGA ASMs, I am excited to work together with my multi-disciplinary colleagues, to warmly welcome you and deliver another stellar conference program. We hope to celebrate another year of breakthrough research successes, with the common goal of equity, access, and improving outcomes in all aspects of lung cancer.

We look forward to connecting face-to-face, having vibrant conversations, and sharing knowledge across all disciplines and valued members of our lung cancer community. Please come join us in July to enjoy what we hope will be, an inspirational and highly educational meeting for all.

Why Attend TOGA 2023 ASM?

The TOGA 2023 ASM will provide an opportunity for our multidisciplinary membership to come together to learn of advances in quality thoracic cancer care, to discuss their application in the local healthcare environment and to develop cross-cutting research capacity.

The two-day meeting program will cover topical areas of thoracic cancer treatment and research and feature local and international speakers. Oral abstract sessions will provide an opportunity for members to present their research and a membership meeting will enable progress since TOGA was established to be outlined and invite members to engage with the TOGA leadership.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to connect and collaborate with some of the most innovative and influential minds in healthcare and clinical research from across the lung cancer community including respiratory medicine, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery, pathology, nursing, allied health, and consumers involved in research.
