WFNOS Magazine Volume 3 (2018) Issue 1

What are the best assets we have in neuro-oncology? In my view these are the multidisciplinary collaboration, scientific strengths, and focus on development of young neuro-oncologists. The present issue of the WFNOS Magazine provides great examples of these highlighted features of neuro-oncology. The review dives deep into immunotherapy for brain tumors.We lean on the structure and vision of well-established national societies in Australia and China, but also get the chance to understand the challenges of building a new society for neuro-oncology in a nonprivileged area of the world.In this issue of the magazine we will have opinion papers on the value of brain tumor epigenetics, as well as on the role of radiation therapy in combined modality therapies with a focus not only on the classical approaches but also radiosensitization and immunotherapies.

We wish all of you great personal and academic successes in the upcoming month and novel insights into neuro-oncology provided at one of the upcoming national or international meetings.

With best regards and joyful reading,
Wolfgang Wick, EANO President
Nino Chiocca, SNO President
