SNO(w) might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Florida USA, but it was front of mind for Associate Professor Matt Dun and some 2000+ delegates attending the Society of Neuro-Oncology (SNO) Annual Meeting, November 17th-20th 2022.
“The Society for Neuro-Oncology exists to advance multi-disciplinary brain tumor research, education, and collaboration to drive discovery and improve patient care”… now that’s a cause we can get behind!
One of three projects A/Prof Dun presented was the intricate detail on how combined use of paxalisib and ONC201 has an anti-tumour effect in DIPG/DMG. The sum of four years’ investigation by the Dun Lab (much by PhD student Evie Jackson) was made possible by RUN DIPG and our supporters.
It is fantastic to see our community’s effort on the international stage, and what many brains thinking together can do to improve outcomes for brain cancer patients.
