ReMission Summit 2022

ReMission Summit is a workshop for leading brain tumor researchers and clinicians, industry innovators, and government neuro-oncology experts. Sponsored by University of Florida Trustee Anita Zucker and Orlando Businessman, Harris Rosen, and organized by leading neuro-oncology researcher Duane A. Mitchell, MD, PhD, this summit joins forces across disciplines, institutions, and the usual borders that all too often stymie effective research.
