Inaugural New Zealand Aotearoa Neuro-Oncology Group (NANOG) Conference

Primary Brain Tumour Care and Research in New Zealand

In early 2023, New Zealand’s first national brain tumour working group (New Zealand Aotearoa Neuro-Oncology Group – NANOG) was established. To celebrate the launch, we are holding our first annual meeting in association with AWCBR on the 26th of August, 2023, at Crown Plaza Hotel, from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm. This year’s inaugural theme is“Primary Brain Tumour Care and Research in New Zealand”, which will bring together eminent researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals, and patient support groups from around the country to share and discuss advances in the field of neuro-oncology.

The symposium will comprise multi-disciplinary talks and poster sessions from experts representing all aspects of brain tumour care and research to highlight the latest breakthroughs, innovative treatment strategies, and advancements in diagnosis and management for these devastating brain-derived neoplasms. This symposium promises to enrich your understanding of brain tumours and foster collaborative projects between neuro-oncology and neuroscience.
