The purpose of this symposium is to strengthen national collaboration and childhood cancer research in toxicity and late complications. The hope is that this symposium will support the collaborative programs that have applied for funding from the Childhood Cancer Fund's new call within the strategic focus on toxicity and late complications, where up to 16 million SEK will finance one to two projects in the research area.

Participation is free. The Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund finances the symposium, including fika and lunch, but not participants' travels, hotel, or working time.

This symposium is organized by the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund's National Working Group for Toxicity and Late Complications (NAG-TSK), as a part of the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund's special investment in "Toxicity and Late Complications".
