The course is co-organized by the Training Unit and the SIREDO center (Care, Innovation, Research in Childhood Cancer, ADOlescent and young adults) of Institut Curie with clinicians and researchers from Institut Curie, Gustave Roussy, Hôpital Necker Enfants Malades and Centre Hospitalier Sainte-Anne. International speakers will contribute to cover an up-to-date clinical-biological overview of diagnosis and treatment.
The program is adapted to a virtual format. The course is divided into two 3-day sessions, with short talks followed by lively group discussions for each topic covered.
- Session 1 (20-22 september 2021) will focus on embryonic tumors, craniopharyngioma, and germ cell tumors.
- Session 2 (dates to be set) will be dedicated to gliomas, ependymomas and oncogenetics.
The course is open to all medical disciplines involving diagnosis and treatments in pediatric neuro-oncology (pathologists, biologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, pediatric oncologists / neuro-oncologists, radiotherapists, neuro-pediatricians, etc.) as well as Master 2 students, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows already working in the field or wishing to join it.
