Denver to Host 18th International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology

Monday, April 02, 2018

The 18th International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology – a unique forum that brings together leading researchers, physicians, surgeons, nurses, and social workers to exchange information and results and collaborate – is coming to Denver this summer. ISPNO is the major global meeting of the international community of professionals involved in the scientific research, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of infants, children, and young people with central nervous system (CNS) tumors.

This is the first time the symposium will be held in the U.S. since 2008. Denver being named as a host site marks another recognition of the groundbreaking research being conducted at the University of Colorado and Children’s Hospital Colorado.

“The fact that this international, highly regarded conference is being held in Denver speaks directly to the leading edge research being conducted at Children’s Hospital Colorado, research that would not have been possible without The Morgan Adams Foundation,” said Nick Foreman, MD, ISPNO conference co-chair and Associate Chief of the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “The Symposium is critically important for researchers around the world. It provides a forum for the thoughtful exchange of information and many opportunities to further collaborative efforts, both of which will lead to more promising studies that we can use to help our patients.”

The Sympoisum will take place from June 30 to July 3 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Denver. It will include plenary and poster sessions, keynote talks, and roundtable discussions about the latest research and clinical care of pediatric CNS tumors.

More than 1,500 pediatric neuro-oncology specialists from around the world will come to Denver to engage in dialogue regarding new treatments, innovative research, and advances in pediatric neuro-oncology. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Please email joan@morganadamsfoundation.org if you are able to help!
