17th Annual Neuro-Tumor Club at AACR

17th Annual Neuro-Tumor Club Dinner Meeting at AACR
 
 
Time: Monday April 4, 2011
6:30pm – 10:00pm
Location: Rosen Centre Hotel, 9840 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32119
RSVP Required, especially if you are NOT presenting!
Chair: Waldemar Debinski
Co-Chair: Hideho Okada
 
The 17th Neuro-Tumor Club Dinner Meeting will again take place at the AACR Annual Meeting, this time in Orlando, Florida. This meeting, for brain tumor researchers attending the AACR Annual Conference, is organized by the Society for Neuro-Oncology.
 
As in past years, this event will be an informal and stimulating exchange of late-breaking findings of specific and focused interest to investigators dedicated to brain tumor research.  Sponsors will be supporting the event by covering meeting room fees and the cost of drinks and buffet dinner for those who RSVP their attendance at the dinner.
 
Format:
We would like to capitalize on the success of the meeting in past years.  The presentations will again be very short (5 slides; 5 minutes) and will focus on themes of critical importance to Neuro-Oncology. A short introduction of the theme will be given by the moderators before the presentations.  With only 5 slides to present, the purpose is that “each presenter will make a seminal observation, rebut dogma, disclose a paradox, or offer to crack open a new paradigm”.  At the conclusion of each presentation we will have a short discussion. Think collaboration, new perspective, synergy, or a glimpse into your competitor’s lab.  If you’ve written a recent review (or are planning to do so) on any of these themes, please offer to give a 3-minute introduction to the topic. Also, if there is a theme you would like to see developed, please feel free to suggest it.
 
Targeted Themes:
1.     Geno/Phenotyping and Personalized/Combinatorial Therapy
2.     Angiogenesis and Tumor Microenvironment
3.     New Gene and Immunotherapy
4.     Eliminating Side Effects of Effective Therapies
5.     New Tools and Translational Approaches
6.     Metastases to Brain
