Continuing Education (CME)

2023 SNO Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Research Conference
June 22-24, 2023 

This activity is provided by the Society for Neuro-Oncology.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Novocure.

Target Audience
Pediatric neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, physician/scientists, clinical and laboratory trainees, and allied health professionals.

Statement of Need/Program Overview
The SNO 7th Biennial Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Research Conference will be held June 22-24, 2023, in Washington, D.C. at the Capital Hilton. 

Building on the success of our previous pediatric meetings, this biennial conference encourages the sharing of ideas and results, new collaborations and offers attendees a state-of-the-art update in the field of pediatric brain tumor research. The scientific program will offer outstanding keynotes, panel discussions and abstract presentations on a range of timely themes shaping the future of pediatric neuro-oncology. Topics the conference will include developmental origins of pediatric brain tumors, novel approaches in cancer neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, focused ultrasound/drug delivery, diversity & inclusion, novel immunotherapeutic findings, clinical trial reports, and single cell approaches to decipher molecular landscapes. Conference participants will also have opportunities to present their work — and to learn about advances made by others — through short oral presentations and scientific posters selected by the abstract review committee.

Educational Objectives
After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to:  
  • Cite the developmental origins of pediatric brain tumors.
  • Summarize the interactions between normal cells of the nervous system and cancer cells.
  • Explain how artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches can leverage big genomic data sets in cancer biology towards improved treatment options for pediatric patients with CNS tumors.
  • Identify new therapeutic delivery options that effectively treat pediatric patients with brain tumors protected by the blood brain barrier.
  • Summarize recent advances in the experimental and clinical approach to the treatment of pediatric patients with brain tumors
  • Identify recent developments and advances in translational and correlative biology and implications for discovery of novel treatments for pediatric patients with brain tumors.
