On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we would like to cordially invite you to join us in Paris next year for the "Advances in Neuroblastoma Research 2002 Meeting". This will be the first post-genome discovery meeting, with many exciting new developments in molecular diagnosis, pathogenesis, prognosis and therapy.

This meeting forms part of an international program of symposia in which advances in neuroblastoma research are presented and discussed. Content will include basic research in relation to neuroblastoma and applied clinical studies, with the opportunity for major interaction between basic and clinical scientists working in the field.

Morning plenary session will feature presentations relevant to basic, translational and clinical scientists, while afternoons will feature parallel sessions focusing on either laboratory, translational or clinical topics. Poster presentations will be a major part of the meeting, with dedicated time allocated for in-depth discussion.

Join us in Paris in June 2002!
