Therapy for children with high-risk neuroblastoma has changed dramatically and outcomes have greatly improved in the past decades, but much remains to be done to increase survival rates and decrease late effects of treatment. To move the field forward and improve outcomes for all children with high-risk neuroblastoma, we must develop a vision for neuroblastoma therapy that extends beyond what is right around the corner, and consider the paradigm shifts that will be required to turn our broad vision into reality. Please join us for an interactive session that will be of interest to laboratory-based scientists, neuroblastoma trialists, clinical care providers and parent advocates as we take a birds’ eye view and challenge ourselves to think expansively about how neuroblastoma will be treated in 2035 … and beyond.
