Welcome to the 8th edition of Brain Mets meeting!

 

We are pleased to welcome you to Marseille for the eighth Annual Brain Metastases Research and Emerging Therapy Conference. Last year’s successful edition encouraged us to once again organize this conference. This year the meeting will be held under the auspices of EORTC, EANS, EAN, the French neuro-oncology group (ANOCEF) and the French society of neuro-surgery are partners of this event. This initiative brings the multidisciplinary approach needed to develop Brain Metastases projects across several tumor types and disciplines such as breast cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, imaging, radiation oncology, pathology and molecular. It is expected that this cross-sectional meeting will stimulate innovative and insightful research in a collaborative environment and improve the standard of care and methodology of clinical research. For this 8th edition, a special session will be dedicated to challenges in precision medicine and potential of liquid biopsies in CNS Metastases. Highlighted topics will also cover the increasing place of combined treatment in the era of targeted therapies and controversies in therapeutic management of BM. One of the objectives of this edition will be to describe the clinical problem, identify the critical points of therapeutic failure and summarize the current state of knowledge of the genetics and biology of Brain Metastases. The overarching goal of the meeting is to generate a set of research priorities that would stimulate integrated scientific and clinical investigation directed at understanding basic processes of Brain Metastases and translating such insights to clinical care. The organizing committee hopes that this meeting will provide an exceptional opportunity for you to share your collective expertise ranging from basic science to new treatments in order to facilitate ongoing studies and lay the foundation for future collaborative projects.
