Neuro-Oncology International Research Conference
November 9 - 10, 2017


It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the Neuro-Oncology International Research Conference to be held November 9-10, 2017 at the Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers in Houston, TX.

This event will bring together scientists and other professionals working in a variety of disciplines to review the state-of-the-art of pediatric neuro-oncology care and discuss where the field will be moving over the next few years. Featured topics will include precision oncology and immunotherapeutic approaches, the promise of harnessing epigenetic alterations, and potential interventions to improve the neurocognitive and psychosocial outcomes of long-term survivors of childhood brain tumors.

While we will not have a formal poster session, there will be an area at the conference venue with poster boards where investigators and trainees can share their work in poster format. If you would like to bring a poster for display, please indicate “yes” when registering.
