#DataMatters in Neuro-Oncology at SNO/NCI Event
Hosted by NCI’s Center for Cancer Research, Neuro-Oncology Branch, and the Society for Neuro-Oncology, “Introduction to Career Pathways in Neuro-Oncology” will address how the study of central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms (i.e., neuro-oncology) is a rapidly evolving subspecialty field of medical science that requires highly specialized professionals.
During the clinical research/patient care panel of the event, Dr. Jill Barnholtz-Sloan, CBIIT’s associate director for Informatics and Data Science Program, will present “#DataMatters in neuro-oncology,” sharing the importance and impact of data on CNS research. She will be joined by other professionals from multidisciplinary backgrounds.
Register for the event by Monday, January 10. Collegiate students, medical students, residents (of any discipline), and professionals in clinical care and research (i.e., oncologists, epidemiologists, etc.) are encouraged to attend.
Dr. Barnholtz-Sloan is the associate director for Informatics and Data Science Program at NCI’s Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology and a senior investigator for NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics.
