Summit

Scientific Summit

The National Brain Tumor Scientific Summit begins with a highly interactive day, bringing together renowned leaders from all aspects of the brain tumor field to engage in robust, problem-solving dialog. Together we will address the critical challenges and opportunities for advancing brain tumor research, share progress, explore emerging opportunities and challenges, and build strong and diverse partnerships to fast-track new discoveries toward treatments and a cure.

Lend your voice

Head to the Hill

Each year, we encourage advocates from all 50 states to attend Head to the Hill, so that each and every state is represented and so all Members of Congress can meet with and learn about the issues that face the brain tumor community. In 2017, 38 states and the District of Columbia were represented at Head to the Hill. Please Save the Date for next year’s Head to the Hill, which will take place on May 7 & 8, 2018 in Washington, DC.
