Mayo Clinic Neuroscience and Oncology Innovation Summit 2017

Course description

Course Directors: William D. Freeman, M.D., Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, M.D., Joon H. Uhm, M.D., Betty Kim, M.D., Ph.D., Robert B. Diasio, M.D. and Asher A. Chanan-Khan, M.D.

Co-Course Directors: Christina Smith, A.R.N.P. and Suzanne Brown, B.S.N., C.N.R.N., S.C.R.N.

This course will provide attendees with an update in major areas of neuroscience and oncology research from basic science, translational laboratories and clinical trials research. Lectures will cover neuroscientific arenas including brain tumor biology and growth, vascular neogenesis, nanotechnology for tumor suppression, viral vectors for tumor destruction, and other new agents to target and destroy brain tumors.  The conference will discuss basic tumors of the brain and other sites including breast in addition to metastatic brain tumor therapies.  Also, the course will cover the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to tumors. Lectures will be supplemented with high yield industry and CEO-level Q&A sessions, precision medicine, and patient and celebrity stories. Other high yield sessions will include governmental policy makers that are guiding brain tumor patient care for future health care systems.

Call for Abstracts

As part of the 2017 Neuroscience and Oncology Innovation Summit course, an e-Poster session for presentation of original research and challenging cases dedicated to the fields of Neuroscience, Neuro-Oncology, and Oncology will be held at this meeting. Abstracts can be submitted in the following formats:

  • Neuro/Oncology research: The conference will also review randomized trials, outcome studies, potential practice innovations, basic and translational research, as well as health economics of neuro/oncology patient care.  Also research into  systems-based practice innovation or improvements will be reviewed for acceptance.
  • Challenging Neuro/Oncology and Oncology Cases.  These may include challenging clinical cases encountered in practice (ie., case reports) of those encountered in clinical practice. 

Posters will be peer-reviewed. Accepted abstract recipients will be notified by email after the deadline, Monday, August 7, 2017. At least one of the authors must register and attend the conference. Please email FLA CME Abstracts for additional details.
