In July, 2012, he joined the Thoracic Oncology Program at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.  In 2012-13 he served as the Chair of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Clinical Practice Guideline Committee, in charge of developing evidenced-based guidelines for practicing oncologists.  He has served as first author, or co-author, of every ASCO lung cancer guideline published since 2003.

Dr. Azzoli's research interests include the development of new drugs for patients with all stages of lung cancer, thymoma, mesothelioma, and esophageal cancer.  He has a special interest in combining drug therapy with surgery to improve rates of cure in patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer.  He also works to develop new tissue and blood tests to guide therapy.
