To the focused ultrasound community:

As we get deeper into the planning for our first ever virtual symposium in November, we are becoming more excited and enthusiastic that this will be a very positive experience for all and a successful meeting.

James P. Allison, PhD, Chair of Immunology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, will share three decades of experience studying cancer immunotherapies at the Foundation’s 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound.

Merit Cudkowicz, MD, Chief of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), will present a special lecture at the Foundation’s 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound.

After much consideration for the wellbeing of our participants during the current public health crisis, we believe it is unlikely that our international community will be able to safely convene in McLean, Virginia, this November.

The Foundation and the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU) are discussing alternative methods to present key data after the postponement of ISTU 2020. The two organizations are exploring ideas for a special session at the Foundation’s 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound in November, which would include research presented by the ISTU 2020 Annual Award Winners.
