The NCI Thoracic Malignancy Steering Committee (TMSC) was established in 2008.

Mission Statement

The TMSC functions to harmonize an efficient, cost-effective, science-driven, and transparent process that will identify and promote the "Best Science" in clinical research of lung and other thoracic malignancies by addressing the design and prioritization of phase 3 trials and large phase 2 studies in chest malignancies. In addition to focusing on lung cancer, the TMSC addresses oncology trials in other thoracic sites, such as mesothelioma. Esophageal cancer trials are reviewed by the Gastrointestinal Steering Committee.
