About the Virtual Summit Series

The CureSearch Summit serves as a unique platform for driving critical stakeholder collaborations to accelerate the pace of pediatric drug development. Because of the current global pandemic, the 2021 CureSearch Summit will be hosted as a series of four virtual sessions, all focused on the State of Solid Tumor Biopsies, each lasting approximately three (3) hours. We know that long-term solutions will require a seismic shift to the existing pediatric drug development process and landscape. This change will require strategic collaboration amount all players in the pediatric cancer ecosystem.
