POSTER SESSION & COCKTAIL HOUR
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Nearly 300 projects have leveraged CBTN resources to accelerate discovery. Summit participants are invited to learn more about the projects driving advances in pediatric brain tumor research through a poster session showcasing research findings and projects currently underway. A complete list of posters and abstracts is forthcoming.
CBTN strives to support the growth and development of investigators who are new to the field and recognizes the benefits of engagement in professional meetings of this kind. A call for abstracts was put to the CBTN community, with an emphasis on encouraging young investigator participation. Thanks to our meeting sponsors, we were able to provide travel support to 18 young investigators with posters on display tonight. With careful review by the CBTN Executive and Scientific Chairs, six posters were awarded as top entries for their excellence.
