Researchers Converge on Boston for NBTS Summit

Research and collaboration are crucial in finding new treatments for brain tumors. That’s why on October 15, the National Brain Tumor Society is holding its 2015 Scientific Summit. Researchers and clinicians will meet and hear presentations on scientific methods, research, and findings and see what avenues of study they can continue together for the benefit of the brain tumor community.

Our agenda includes discussions on glioblastoma, oligodendroglioma, pediatrics, and metabolic therapies. This collaboration is vital to moving forward on a cure, and we couldn’t do it with you.
