International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig2016) In collaboration with BTOG
BTOG aims to improve the care of patients with thoracic malignancies through multidisciplinary education and clinical and scientific research. BTOG represents all the disciplines involved in the care of lung cancer and mesothelioma throughout the UK and includes medical and clinical oncologists, respiratory physicians, surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists, nurses, pharmacists and scientists. BTOG also aims to provide a Continuing Education Format for all professionals involved in the management of lung cancer and mesothelioma and to act as a body that could both help develop and give advice on thoracic oncology guidelines for patient care and to generate ideas for clinical trials and develop these ideas into full protocols. BTOG does not have or plan to have a trials infrastructure with the group being fortunate to have a professional association with existing trials units in the UK. The Chair of BTOG is Dr Sanjay Popat.
