Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation
This symposium attracted the leading international experts in childhood brain tumors. It was designed as one and a half days of intense interactive sessions for participants to discuss the current concepts, challenges, and ongoing research of multimodality treatment for various childhood brain tumors. Scientists, physicians, and trainees from across the country had the opportunity to share thoughts, discuss current issues, and initiate much needed phase I trials in recurrent/refractory pediatric brain tumors. This meeting also presented a unique platform to gather subspecialty experts in pediatric brain tumors, allowing scientists and physicians to share information and to define research or clinical endeavors for the future. The challenges, solutions, and novel concepts discussed will encourage attendees to prepare strategies for new translational research and to profile possible new therapies.
