TBCG at the COGNO ASM 2022
October 24, 2022
The Brain Cancer Group had the privilege to take up the Platinum Sponsorship at the Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO) 14th Annual Scientific Meeting in Brisbane Queensland last week.
The organisers were delighted to be meeting face-to-face once more and for the opportunity to meaningfully reconnect and refocus on the significance of COGNO in Australasia today.
A large team of TBCG doctors, researchers & support staff and our Community Ambassador Cassandra Bennett attended.
The exciting program featured acclaimed international and local speakers. Presentations covered a wide range of neuro-oncology topics such as translational science, novel therapies, and supportive care. New sessions were also scheduled to delve deeper into spinal oncology, medicinal cannabis, and a special education workshop for trainees.
