The 16th Neuro-Tumor Club Dinner Meeting will again take place at the AACR Annual Meeting, this time in Washington, DC. This meeting, for brain tumor researchers attending the AACR Annual Meeting, 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.
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.
• Angiogenesis and the microenvironment in brain tumor biology and therapy
• MicroRNAs as oncogenes or tumor suppressors in brain tumors
• The brain tumor stem cell as target
• New hopes for immunotherapy in brain tumors
• From bench to bedside and back to the bench: translational research in brain tumors
• SNPs, mutations, and genetics of brain tumors
• New tools, methods and mouse models in brain tumor research
