BNOS Annual Meeting
10-12 July 2013
Durham University Scientific Site
‘Art and Science’
The British Neuro-Oncology Society (BNOS) annual meeting is being held this July in Durham, to promote excellence in basic science research and clinical management of brain tumours.
The theme ‘Art and Science’ reflects the extensive collaboration which is needed between clinicians, scientists and patients to take forward the prevention, care and treatment of those affected by brain tumours. The conference will address ideas in neuro-oncology, provide a review of fundamental molecular biology for clinicians, and offer insights for scientists into the care given to patients affected by brain tumours.

The British Neuro-Oncology Society (BNOS) is the only professional group in the UK dedicated to the understanding of neuro-oncology/ brain tumours. Through collaboration with other groups, BNOS works to improve the care and treatment of patients with brain tumours across the UK.
BNOS began life as an informal group of researchers coming together as the British Glioma Group in 1981. In 1989 the group was renamed the British Neuro-Oncology Group to include tumours other than glioma. In 2004, the group took on its current name to reflect its wider structure and purpose.
