Washington CanTest Projects

UW Family Medicine’s CanTest research focuses on improving the early diagnosis of individuals with lung cancer in primary care settings. We are better understanding the diagnostic pathways that patients experience using both qualitative methods and bioinformatics tools. We are using these to identify new interventions that can be applied at the primary care level.
