Pediatric Soft Tissue Sarcoma Symposium + International Think Tank 2014

November 7-8, 2014
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA

The Pablove Foundation’s Childhood Cancer Symposiums bridge the information gap by putting parents in the same room as the world’s leading experts. The result is a two-way conversation between medical professionals and patient families. Parents are empowered with knowledge while doctors and nurses find themselves in an environment where collaboration and innovation are just a conversation away.

Pediatric sarcomas make up approximately 15 percent of all new childhood cancer diagnoses. Our 2014 Symposium will focus on the subset of pediatric soft tissue sarcomas, the most common of which is rhabdomyosarcoma. Leading scientists and clinicians from North America and Europe will discuss cutting-edge research in the field and set the tone for scientific progress and collaboration to understand the biology and improve the outcomes for pediatric soft tissue sarcoma over the next decade.

International Think Tank – Friday, November 7, 2014

On Friday, November 7, a group of international experts on pediatric soft tissue sarcomas will participate in an invitation-only workshop on paratesticular rhabdomyosarcoma, followed by a Think Tank on pediatric soft tissue sarcomas. All medical doctors who treat soft tissue sarcomas or researchers working in the area of soft tissue sarcomas are welcome to attend the pre-Symposium International Think Tank on Friday, November 7, 2014. To indicate your interest for this invite-only workshop, please use the subject line “Interest in International Think Tank” and email Community Affairs Director Megan McMillan at with your name, your email address, your title and institution, and please indicate whether you are also planning on attending the Symposium on November 8, 2014.
