Li-Fraumeni Syndrome: A Multidisciplinary State-of-the-Science Conference

Tuesday, November 02, 2010
Natcher Auditorium (Building 45), NIH , Bethesda, Maryland

We anticipated that this would be the first of several Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS)-related scientific meetings. The goals of this first meeting were to bring the clinicians/scientists together to review the current state of knowledge and, more importantly, to foster further collaborations among institutions that have heretofore pursued their research independently. We planned to use this meeting to create a North American LFS consortium. The careful coordination of research efforts is essential to efficiently advance our understanding of this rare syndrome as well as to begin the process of creating a comprehensive, evidence-based management program for LFS.
