First International Symposium on Transdisciplinary Approaches for Neuroblastoma Therapy
This networking event brings together experts from different fields but with the same objective- to join forces to fight NB and accelerate new treatments discovery. To this end, the main aim of the networking event is to share knowledge on Neuroblastoma between physicians, researchers, and members of patient advocacy organizations, and build up a research consortium to actively participate in the Europe's Beating Cancer Plan.
Deadline for abstracts submission: 20th January
Registration deadline: 1st February
The registration is free and open to all interested persons.
The symposium will be held at the Sant Joan de Deu Hospital in the greater Barcelona area (Spain); it will be carried out in four sessions to discuss new advancements in Neuroblastoma characterization and modeling, cutting-edge technologies, and current strategies for Neurblastoma therapy.
The network event will serve to bring knowledge for all participants, build up new research networks, and disseminate the event conclusions to the general public, thanks to the support of the Association of Families and Friends of Children with Neuroblastoma (NEN).
The symposium encourages the participation of Early Career Researchers and enables involvement in the network of usually underrepresented countries in Europe.
