Brain Tumors: 2nd Annual Collaborative Care Conference (Brain Tumors)
Venue: Catamaran Resort Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Jan 21, 2012||End Date/Time: Jan 21, 2012|
|Registration Date: Dec 15, 2011|
|Early Registration Date: Dec 14, 2011|
Advances in neuro-oncology have increased our understanding of the molecular biology of brain tumors. Advances in surgical techniques and intraoperative imaging have improved outcomes. We have seen an integration of newly identified molecular biomarkers into clinical trials in an effort to provide individualized patient treatments. The use of non-invasive methods of detecting tumor proliferation, invasion and angiogenesis within the brain is rapidly growing. Every day brings us closer to the promise that molecular profiling of tumors will predict tumor response to therapy and guide clinical management decisions. The scientific and practice community has also been more receptive to the significant role of supportive care in the management of patients with brain tumors.
As your colleagues, we would like to extend an invitation for you to attend our 2nd annual conference. We hope you will join us for a multidisciplinary discussion on the recent progress and future advances in the treatment of brain tumors.
