About ANR Congress 2014
Neuroblastoma is the second most common solid tumor in childhood and still accounts for 11% of death from cancer in children. The tumor originates from autonomous sympathetic nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. It is diagnosed mainly in infants and children.
The ANR Congress in Cologne will continue in the successful tradition of information exchange in basic biological, translational and clinical research by meetings, workshops, exhibitions and networking.
The tradition started in the 1970ties in Philadelphia by Audrey Evans and has been very influential in the practical medical care for the children as well as for the biological concepts of the disease development.
Moreover, the participants are invited to explore the historical and modern sites of Cologne around the congress.
