As the title suggests, a major focus for this year’s meeting is imaging in neuro-oncology. To this end we are delighted to have Associate Professor Ben Ellingson from UCLA, and Professor Ian Law from University of Copenhagen as two of our international guest speakers.
Other areas of emphasis for this year’s meeting include updates on glioma surgery, treatment of skull base tumours, and recognition and treatment options for recurrent glioma. To this end we are delighted to have Professor Colin Watts from University of Birmingham and Associate Professor Helen Shih from Harvard Medical School to speak to some of these areas. Additionally Associate Professor Seema Nagpal from Stanford University will provide an update on immunotherapy for glioma.
