The Neural Regulation of Cancer

Monday, March 14, 2022
9:00-10:00 AM EST (2:00-3:00 PM CET)

Complimentary Registration

Please join us for an exciting webinar titled “The Neural Regulation of Cancer,” jointly sponsored by the Society for Neuro-Oncology and the World Federation of Neurology. The webinar will occur on March 14, 2022, from 9:00-10:00 am EST (2:00-3:00 pm CET). Participants will learn about the role of neuronal activity in glioma progression, the neural regulation of brain metastases, and the similar principles that apply.

The participants will understand the following objectives:
  • Role of the nervous system in the regulation of brain and other types of cancer.
  • The neuromolecular pathways involved in the regulation of cancer proliferation, invasion, and survival.
  • Potential therapeutic targets along with the nervous system - cancer axi.
  • Current clinical trials are underway to target these pathways.
