  • Sohn Conference: Pediatric Cancer in a Post-genomic World

    March 30 - April 1, 2016
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by The Sohn Conference Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences

    Cancer continues to be one of the most challenging diseases to treat despite improved survival rates, with pediatric forms causing devastation to both young patients and their families. In the United States, cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children and, globally, there are more than 250,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year. Advances in biomedicine have illustrated that the underlying etiology of pediatric cancers may be far different than that of their adult counterparts, emphasizing the need for more precise therapeutic options for this vulnerable population. As more pediatric cancer patients are surviving into adulthood, a greater number of late effects have been observed including cancer recurrence or secondary cancers later in life.

    This 2.5-day conference will convene leading researchers, clinicians, pediatric cancer advocates, and industry and governmental stakeholders from around the globe to identify strategies for improving treatment of cancers among pediatric populations. Conference speakers will present emerging basic and clinical cutting edge research in epigenetics, mechanisms of metastasis and disease recurrence, disease risk factors, and diagnostics in pediatric oncology, as well as novel therapies and strategies to improve clinical development and treatment access.
