This event will incorporate The Pam and Rolando Del Maestro Family Undergraduate Student Research Competition Awards. This undergraduate research competition is to showcase work to other scientists, researchers and professionals attending Research Symposium. Eight teams will be competing, of which the top three teams receive the opportunity to present at the Brain Tumour National Conference in Toronto in October 2018 to vie for the top prize. 

Presentations will be relevant to the brain tumour research community. Its purpose will be to provide students an opportunity to create a research proposal, practice presentation skills and receive constructive feedback from a panel that will include physicians and researchers. This competition allows students to network and create awareness while engaging the brain tumour community in brain tumour research. Find out more about the The Pam and Rolando Del Maestro Family Undergraduate Student Research Competition Awards and please learn more about the qualification process and associated deadlines as outlined in this document.

Childhood Brain Tumour Signs & Symptoms

Earlier this year, you gave us your feedback in a survey on brain tumour signs and symptoms. One of the things we did with that survey was to compile a list of the most common signs & symptoms for children. Now, as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are sharing compelling quotes from that survey and urging you to share them with this link to see the symptoms: www.braintumour.ca/symptoms. Thank you!
