Our 6th Annual Parent Conference – ‘Understanding the Landscape of Neuroblastoma Research’ informed parents and families about current and upcoming trials and research surrounding the disease affecting their children.
We were joined by leading clinicians and researchers both from the UK and around the world. As well as a combination of presentations and open panels, the Conference featured our Gala Dinner, which provided more opportunities for families and researchers to network and socialise in an informal setting.
A selection of the presentations can be found below as a video and with the slides. We are very grateful to all the speakers who volunteered their time to attend the conference and for allowing us to share their presentations.
