The 2010 SNO Education Day on November 18 includes concurrent sessions on Tumor Angiogenesis Research and Treatment, and Quality of Life/Symptom Management.
- Molecular regulation of tumor angiogenesis
- Forms and sequence of angiogenesis in brain tumors
- Molecular mechanisms of angiogenesis and experimental model systems
- Imaging brain tumor angiogenesis in vivo
- Tumor angiogenesis as a systemic mechanism - bone marrow-derived cells in glioblastoma neovascularization
- Brain cancer stem-like cells and the vascular niche
- Novel anti-angiogenic agents/therapeutics showing efficacy in preclinical brain tumor models
- Anti-angiogenic agents available for clinical trials
- Current status of anti-angiogenic therapies for brain tumors
- Radiographic assessments of anti-angiogenic therapies
- Assessing therapeutic response to anti-angiogenic therapies
- Mechanisms of resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy and post-anti-angiogenic therapeutic strategies
- Anti-angiogenic therapy for pediatric brain tumors
- Anti-VEGF therapy for other nervous system tumors: NF2 and VHL related tumors
A Quality of Life/Symptom Management session will be presented concurrently on Education Day

- Identification and management of depression in brain tumor patients: a compelling issue
- Effect of exercise and fitness in brain tumor survivors
- New studies in maintaining quality of life in caregivers
- Living with the brain tumor: the essential patient/family/workplace approach
