The successful edition of last year's meeting led to the organization of this year's conference, with a more European perspective, just before EANO meeting.
One of the objectives of the second edition of the International Conference on Brain Metastases Research and Emerging therapies will be to describe the clinical problem, identify the critical points of therapeutic failure and summarize the current state of knowledge of the genetics and biology of brain metastases. The overarching goal of the meeting is to generate a set of research priorities that would stimulate integrated scientific and clinical investigation directed at understanding basic processes of brain metastasis and translating such insights to clinical care as rapidly possible.
Canceropôle PACA will gather during this specific thematic meeting the best world known specialists of the domain under the direction of Prof. Philippe Métellus, Dr Anthony Gonçalves, Prof. Fabrice Barlési and Dr Agnès Richard-Tallet, from the Neurosurgery and Medical Oncology Department, at the University Hospital La Timone in Marseille and the Institut Paoli-Calmette Cancer Center.
