International Cognition and Cancer Task Force


The potentially detrimental effects of cancer and related treatments on cognitive functioning are emerging as a key focus of cancer survivorship research. Many patients with central nervous system (CNS) or non-CNS tumors develop cognitive problems associated with their disease and during the course of their treatment that can result in diminished functional independence.

The research conducted by the ICCTF members and others around the world is devoted to increasing our understanding of the incidence, severity, individual risk factors, and causes of cognitive and behavioral dysfunction, as well as investigations into ways to prevent and intervene against these adverse symptoms. 

The 2020 ICCTF meeting will be held immediately before the 48th annual INS meeting in Denver, Colorado.  The dates of the ICCTF meeting are February 3-5, 2020. The dates of the INS meeting are February 5-8, 2020 (see Meetings).
