Elevated Third Launches Redesigned Drupal Website for the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer


Denver based digital agency, Elevated Third, recently launched a new website for the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), https://www.iaslc.org/.

While creating the new site, Elevated Third gave careful consideration to the broad range of users that would be accessing the site.  Both members of the public and members of the medical community use the IASLC for information and the site needed to have a logical way to organize the information. The new site uses Drupal, an open-source content management system, which creates an easy way for the IASLC administrators to add and update their existing content as well as gives visitors convenient access to information.

The digital agency also updated the IASLC branding in order to improve clarity and credibility in their online presence. Combined with the simplified site architecture, IASLC was able to create a user-friendly site for both current IASLC members and potential members. To improve upon the cohesiveness and usability of the site, similar page layouts were built to easily add and reuse content on different pages throughout the site.  The IASLC also wanted to highlight their conferences, which they offer around the world to help facilitate the research of lung cancer. These conferences are now prominently featured throughout the site and have their own separate section that allows visitors to filter by region.

To help celebrate the IASLC’s 40th anniversary, Elevated Third also an created an interactive video timeline that celebrates the momentous gains made in lung cancer and thoracic malignancies since the association's inception in 1974.
