  • Olga Olevsky, MD, of UCLA Medical Center
  • Percy Lee, MD, Chief Thoracic Radiation Oncology at UCLA
  • Dr. Richard Lemen, Former Assistant Surgeon General of the United States
  • Irene I-Lan Wu, MD, UCLA Pain Management Center
  • Joachim Aerts, MD, of Erasmus MC Cancer Institute in the Netherlands
  • Jan P. van Meerbeeck, MD of Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium,
