About SNO

The Society for Neuro-Oncology is a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to promoting advances in neuro-oncology through research and education.
Now in its nineteenth year, the Society continues to grow and mature as the premier North American organization for clinicians, basic scientists, nurses and other health care professionals whose focus is central nervous system tumors in children and adults.
SNO Annual Reports 
The Society now has four programs—the Annual Meeting Sponsorship Program, the Partner’s Advisory Council, the President’s Club, and the Victor Levin Founder’s Society— which sustain its vision and mission.
The Annual Meeting Sponsorship Program has facilitated growth in the Society’s premier education event. Those non-profit associations, foundations and societies, and corporate donors who support the annual meeting at the highest level with a multi-year commitment are members of the Partner’s Advisory Council, which has direct access to the SNO Board of Directors and Foundation Board on a regular basis. Current members of the Council include the American Brain Tumor Association, EMD Serono, Genentech, the National Brain Tumor Society, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, Schering-Plough Oncology and the Sontag Foundation. The President’s Club provides annual giving opportunities for individual members of the Society. Through endowment, future Society-supported educational and research endeavors will be funded by the Victor Levin Founder’s Society.


The membership is drawn from multiple disciplines, including epidemiology, medical oncology, neuro-oncology, neurosurgery, pathology, pediatrics, psychology, radiology, radiation oncology, and basic science.
Membership levels include:
  • Active (for those with doctorate-level degrees)
  • Associate (for those involved in neuro-oncology research, treatment or support, without a doctorate-level degree)
  • Trainee (for those with or without doctorate-level degrees, in fellowship, post-doctoral or other educational positions, below faculty level)
  • Emeritus membership is available for members of SNO in good standing who are 65 years of age or older, or by special dispensation of the membership committee.


When the SNO office receives your membership payment, we will process the application at the appropriate level, and contact you if we require additional information.  You will be sent a membership certificate and other information regarding your membership opportunities.

Requirements for membership are contained in the Society Bylaws.
