The National Brain Tumor Society Summit kicks off today in Cambridge, Mass. While it may be a little late for most of us to attend, there is a live broadcast Friday morning at 8:30 EST. The webcast will include an update on the state of pediatric brain tumor research. If you can’t make it, the recording, along with a recap of the entire summit, will be online in a few weeks.

The National Brain Tumor Society is the combined organization of the National Brain Tumor Foundation and the Brain Tumor Society. The two groups came together in 2008. The organization has provided millions of dollars worth of grants to research groups, including pediatric brain tumor research and initiated the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative, which aims to double the five-year survival rate of patients with glioblastoma multiforme.
