About SNOPeds

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to attend the 5th Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Basic & Translational Research Conference, which is scheduled to be held May 3-4, 2019, in the eclectic and culturally diverse city of San Francisco. 

The scientific program will offer outstanding keynote and plenary addresses on a range of timely topics including manipulating the immune system, setting the standard for molecular diagnosis, and pediatric trial design.  Sunrise sessions will cover novel therapies, rare brain tumors, single cell sequencing, familial predisposition, model systems and liquid biopsies.  Conference participants will also have opportunities to present their work — and to learn about advances made by others — through short oral presentation and scientific posters selected by the abstract review committee.

In addition to cutting edge science, we expect the conference will provide an outstanding and unparalleled forum for networking and socialization with like-minded colleagues from around the world, as well as the opportunity to interact with exhibitors from SNO’s industry and non-profit partners.

As the shimmering “City by the Bay,” San Francisco’s distinctive location leads to spectacular views and experiences that could only happen here. The city’s wide array of attractions, activities, top restaurants and personality-infused neighborhoods appeal to visitors of all ages. There is easy access to San Francisco from Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and North America. Social events are available to congress participants and their guests, through which the depth, breadth, and beauty of our host city and Northern California can be explored.

We hope to see you by the bay!
