In this NCI Office of Cancer Survivorship (OCS) Director’s Series webinar on May 2, 2023, OCS Director Dr. Emily Tonorezos and Dr. Terri Armstrong of NCI’s Neuro-Oncology Branch presented Opportunities to Advance the Science of Survivorship in Neuro-Oncology, and Kimberly Wallgren shared her insights and experiences as a cancer caregiver. Dr. Tonorezos and Dr. Armstrong provided an overview of currently funded projects in neuro-oncology survivorship, how our understanding of tumors and the cancer experience has changed over the years, and gaps and challenges in this area of research.
