2018 International Chordoma Research Workshop

Thursday, March 22 – Friday, March 23 • Boston, MA



About the Workshop

Since 2007, the International Chordoma Research Workshop (ICRW) series has served as the focal point and principal gathering of the worldwide chordoma research community.

The 2018 ICRW consisted of a mix of plenary presentations, group discussions, and breakout sessions focused on topics ranging from chordoma biology to clinical research. Additionally, it will feature a poster session and two evening receptions, providing multiple opportunities to network with colleagues. It concluded on Friday evening with a special dinner including members of the chordoma patient community celebrating more than 10 years of progress since the launch of the Chordoma Foundation.
