SOHN CONFERENCE: Pediatric Cancer in a Post-genomic World

 

This 2.5-day conference will convene leading researchers, clinicians, pediatric cancer advocates, and industry and governmental stakeholders from around the world dedicated to improving the understanding and treatment of pediatric cancers. These unique cancers continue to be challenging to treat despite improved survival rates. Advances in biomedicine have illustrated that the underlying etiology of pediatric cancers may be far different than their adult counterparts, emphasizing the need for more precise therapeutic options.
