COGNO ASM Session 1: Opening Plenaries 1-3, Abstract deadline extended to 9am Wed 11 July AEST

 
 
Dear COGNO members

There are 94 days to go until the COGNO ASM 2018 in Brisbane!
 
The central theme of the meeting is ‘living well with brain cancer in an era of precision treatments’. Brain tumours are particularly challenging because they can affect a patient in many different and complex ways. This mandates a multi-disciplinary approach to care and the broad expertise of our invited speakers reflects this.
 
Please join us on Monday 8th October for Session 1: Opening Plenaries 1-3. This session will feature three of our four confirmed international guest speakers.  Plenary 1 will be given by Prof Mark Gilbert who is a neuro-oncologist and Chief of the Neuro-Oncology Branch at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA. Prof Gilbert will speak on ‘Challenges in Testing Immunotherapies in Brain Tumor Clinical Trials’.  Plenary 2 will be given by Erik Sulman who is currently Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology, Translational Molecular Pathology and Genomic Medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA. A/Prof Sulman will speak on ‘Developments in Radiation Therapy for Malignant Gliomas’. Plenary 3 will be given by Dr Terri Armstrong who is a Senior Investigator at the Neuro-Oncology Branch at NIH and also the immediate past Vice President of the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO). Dr Armstrong will speak on ‘Patient Centered Research in Neuro-Oncology: Improving Understanding of the Impact of CNS Tumours and Treatment’.
