Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Brain Tumor Course

Brain Tumor Course, August 4-10, 2020, hosted by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories and generously supported by the American Brain Tumor Association

This one week discussion course will provide a clinical overview of brain tumors and emphasize molecular mechanisms involved in the growth and development of brain tumors with special emphasis on stem cells and neural differentiation, signaling mechanisms, chromatin modulation, metabolism, immunotherapy, angiogenesis, metastasis, single-cell analyses, genome-wide analyses, imaging techniques, animal models, mechanism-based therapeutic strategies and clinical trials, etc. Attendees will be able to interact with senior investigators on a one-to-one basis in an informal environment. All non-faculty students will be considered for a generous stipend depending on stated need. Applications are invited from medical and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and clinicians and scientists.
