Dear Colleague,
We are honored to present the 2012 Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium (BTEC) Conference : International Collaborative for Brain Tumor Epidemiology Opportunities, Challenges and Future Directions to be held in Montpellier, France – June 30-July 3, 2012.
Etiologies of brain tumors are still largely unknown. Several studies are available in the literature but only very few predictive factors have been identified to date. Furthermore, brain tumors represent a complex heterogeneous group of pathologic entities and each type (or even subtype) needs to be studied separately. We know that environmental, biological and genetic factors and their interactions with one another play a major role.
The existence of an international structure devote to the epidemiology of brain tumors would be a great opportunity to perform collaborative works, build common databases and identify priority targets for research.
The aim of this meeting in Montpellier is to bring together groups and/or individuals working in the field of brain tumor epidemiology and would like to collaborate on issues that cannot be resolved by a lone research team.
Knowing the major role your association plays in cancer research we wanted you to be aware of this international conference taking place in Europe this year and we hope to see you among our participants.
We also invite you to submit an abstract directly online at landgrena chez _ Abstract deadline is set for March 1st, 2012.
Awaiting the pleasure of welcoming you to Montpellier in July !
Best regards,

Luc Bauchet, MD, PhD
