District Hall, 75 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA October 15, 2015, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

We hope you’ll save the date and attend National Brain Tumor Society’s new 2015 Scientific Summit. This incredible day brings together renowned leaders from all aspects of the brain tumor field — many actively engaged in our ground-breaking research initiatives — to share our collaborative work, explore emerging opportunities, and build strong and diverse partnerships to fast-track new discoveries toward a cure.

For more details and to confirm your attendance, contact Amanda Bates at abates@braintumor.org or 516.632.8880.

Join us in Boston as we focus exclusively this year on where scientific progress is being made through our shared work.

The day will focus on:

Defeat GBM Research Collaborative Working Scientific Review Session

Leadership of each research core will report out on their progress and latest findings, bringing synergistic discussion and review to stimulate faster progress. In addition we will discuss two new areas of interest, Immunotherapy and a game-changing, Global Adaptive Trial.

CURE Platform Lunch Presentation

Data sharing, collaboration, and translational discoveries must be better supported in all brain tumor research, especially for pediatric patients. Learn how the CURE Platform will address those needs.

Community Research Fund: Oligodendroglioma

Our funded researchers will discuss their findings to date and opportunities in the next area of investment will be explored.

Community Research Fund: Metabolic Therapy

The state of the field in relation to nutrition and wellness, specifically looking at metabolic therapy and the opportunities for exploration and investment will be discussed in order to formalize a plan for this work.
