The Advances in Neuro-Oncology Symposium is a two-day symposium designed to update participants on the diagnosis and management of primary and metastatic CNS tumors relevant to current medical practice. Through a combination of lectures, literature review, and case-based presentations, this symposium will deliver up-to-date and cutting-edge information that can be directly integrated into clinical practice.



As part of the course, we will host a poster session for the presentation of original research dedicated to the field of neuro-oncology. Attendees are invited to submit a research abstract summarizing original clinical research, basic research work, or case presentations. Two awards will be given, Clinical Research Award and Basic Science Award. If accepted, at least one author of the poster must attend the live course to present. Accepted abstracts will receive a reduced registration fee of $150. The submission deadline for abstracts is August 29, 2023.  For further information, please review the submission form or email questions to FLA CME Abstracts.
