Brain Tumor Meeting 2024

We are pleased to announce that the 12th Brain Tumor Meeting will take place at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin (Germany) in 2024. The Brain Tumor meeting is an open scientific forum organized to foster the development of multi-center, international and inter-disciplinary collaborations that will lead to a better understanding of the etiology, biology, outcomes and prevention of brain tumors. The two-day conference on brain tumor biology and genetics provides an excellent opportunity for clinicians, neuroscientists, neuro-oncologists, Pls, postdocs, PhD students and research technicians to meet, present and discuss their work, build informal networks and set up new collaborations. More than 300 participants and almost 200 poster presentations in 2022 documented the increasing interest in the field. Internationally renowned speakers agreed to present their newest data on these topics. Furthermore, abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited and the best presentations will be awarded a prize. We expect exciting scientific exchange and invite you to join this meeting.
