Abstract

The Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium (BTEC) is an international organization with membership of individuals from the scientific community with interests related to brain tumor epidemiology including surveillance, classification, methodology, etiology, and factors associated with morbidity and mortality. The 2023 annual BTEC meeting entitled “Impact of Environment on Pediatric and Adult Brain Tumors” was held in Lexington, KY, USA on May 22 – 24, 2023. The meeting gathered scientists from the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe and included four keynote sessions covering genomic, epigenomic, and metabolomic considerations in brain tumor epidemiology, cancer clusters, environmental risk factors, and new approaches to cancer investigation. The meeting also included three abstract sessions and a brainstorming session. A summary of the meeting content is included in this report.
