Continuing Medical Education Information

Mission Statement  

The mission of the Society for Neuro-Oncology is to promote advancement in neuro-oncology through research and by providing a multidisciplinary approach to educational opportunities for clinicians, basic scientists, nurses, and other health care professionals whose focus is central nervous system tumors in children and adults.  

The Continuing Medical Education program (CME) aims to meet the educational needs of our members, outreach partners and global alliances with practice-oriented, scientifically based educational activities that serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, competence and professional performance of our members.  Improved patient outcomes is our ultimate goal. 

To this end, the expected results of our accredited CME activities are to impact improvement in learners’ knowledge and competence, and when positioned to do so, impact improvement in learners’ performance in practice.


2023 SNO Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Research Conference
June 22-24, 2023

Target Audience
Pediatric neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, physician/scientists, clinical and laboratory trainees, and allied health professionals.

Statement of Need/Program Overview
The SNO 7th Biennial Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Research Conference will be held June 22-24, 2023, in Washington, D.C. at the Capital Hilton. 

Building on the success of our previous pediatric meetings, this biennial conference encourages the sharing of ideas and results, new collaborations and offers attendees a state-of-the-art update in the field of pediatric brain tumor research. The scientific program will offer outstanding keynotes, panel discussions and abstract presentations on a range of timely themes shaping the future of pediatric neuro-oncology. Topics the conference will include developmental origins of pediatric brain tumors, novel approaches in cancer neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, focused ultrasound/drug delivery, diversity & inclusion, novel immunotherapeutic findings, clinical trial reports, and single cell approaches to decipher molecular landscapes. Conference participants will also have opportunities to present their work — and to learn about advances made by others — through short oral presentations and scientific posters selected by the abstract review committee.
