Lyudmila Bazhenova, MD
Lyudmila Bazhenova, MD
Program DirectorLyudmila Bazhenova, MD, is a Program Director for Hematology Oncology fellowship training program. Her clinical practice is devoted to patients with all types of lung cancer, and she has expertise in patients with driver mutations, female patients, and nonsmokers. Currently, Dr. Bazhenova leads Lung Cancer group at UCSD and has over 15 years of experience in managing patients with lung cancer. She believes in a multidisciplinary approach to lung cancer and works closely with surgical and radiation oncologists to provide the best patient experience. Dr. Bazhenova is also an active participant in clinical research, including designing and implementing clinical investigations at Moores Cancer Center. Furthermore, she is a member of respiratory committee of Alliance cooperative group.
Pasi Jänne, MD, PhD
Pasi Jänne, MD, PhD
Professor of MedicinePasi Jänne, MD, PhD, is the Director of the Lower Center for Thoracic Oncology and the David M. Livingston, MD Chair at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He is also the Director of the Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Director of the Chen-Huang Center for EGFR Mutant Cancers. Dr. Jänne’s research combines laboratory-based studies, with translational research and clinical trials of novel therapeutic agents in patients with lung cancer. Furthermore, he has made seminal therapeutic discoveries, including being one of the co-discoverers of EGFR mutations, and findings from his work has led to the development of several clinical trials and new therapies for lung cancer patients.
CME InformationRedefining the Role of HER2/HER3 Therapy in NSCLCThis activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC.

DATE OF RELEASE/EXPIRATIONThis activity was released on February 15, 2023 and is valid until February 14, 2024. Requests for credit must be made no later than February 15, 2024
TARGET AUDIENCEMedical oncologists, thoracic oncologists, pathologists, oncology nurse practitioners, oncology physician assistants, and other HCPs managing patients with NSCLC
STATEMENT OF NEED/PROGRAM OVERVIEWDespite substantial advances in the management of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) during the past decade, advanced NSCLC continues to have persistently low 5-year survival rates and imposes a significant burden on patients. Improved molecular-testing practices and integration of new data on targeted treatments could inform treatment decision-making and help clinicians optimize patient care.
Join a panel of experts from the thoracic oncology team to discuss the clinical relevance of HER2 and HER3 status in the treatment of NSCLC. Panelists will explore the identification of actionable mutations in patients with newly diagnosed NSCLC and review how to select appropriate assays for molecular testing. Experts will also look at the landscape of current and emerging targeted therapies and discuss how to account for individual clinical characteristics and mitigate potential adverse effects
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVESAfter completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Illustrate appropriate testing to identify clinically relevant mutations
- Appraise current and emerging targeted therapies for NSCLC, including mechanisms of action, key trial data, and strategies to manage potential side effects
