Abstract submission

On behalf of the Scientific Committee it is our pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract for the ANR meeting. The submission tool is open now. Please note the submission deadline of 17 January 2022 in your agenda!

Abstract topics

ANR2022 will be structured in seven main topics with a special focus on immuno-therapy and relapse development through genetic and non-genetic mechanisms. Prof. Chris Marine (KUL, Leuven, Belgium) will give an invited lecture on his ground-breaking research in the role of plasticity and mutations in melanoma relapses. Immune therapy will be addressed in a special format with invited short talks and discussion sessions.

When submitting an abstract, please indicate the topic best covering your research. These are the seven main topics:

1. Genes, genetic defects and dependencies driving neuroblastoma.
This topic covers all new findings of genes and genetic defects implicated in neuroblastoma pathogenesis
2. Developments in precision therapy.
This topic covers all fundamental, translational and clinical studies of targeted therapy
3. Genetic heterogeneity in relation to resistance and relapse.
This topic focusses on the contribution of genetic defects on relapse development and therapy resistance.
4. Phenotypic plasticity in normal development and disease progression.
This topic focusses on the contribution of phenotypic plasticity on development of relapse and therapy resistance.
5. Developments in immune therapy.
This topic covers all fundamental, translational and clinical studies of immune therapy
6. Clinical trials and relapse treatment.
This topic covers new data on clinical trials and relapse protocols
7. Novel diagnostics (liquid biopsies, theranostics and imaging).
This topic will cover all developments in liquid biopsies, theranostics, imaging and novel diagnostic methods
