Call for Application for EANO Committees

EANO wishes to strengthen its role as THE Association for Neuro-Oncology in Europe, and launches two new committees where your support and input as experts in the field of Neuro-oncology is highly appreciated.

The EANO will be officially accepting new members in all three committees (Educational, Guidelines, Scientific) after the EANO Meeting in Stockholm 2018. The Committees are composed of representatives of different subspecialties with balance regarding European countries and gender. The duration of the position is 2 years, with the possibility of one re-election, depending on the “intensity of commitment” as judged by the Executive Board and Chair of the Committee.

Applications for the Executive Board at the same time are not possible; applications for another EANO Committee is possible by indicating primary and secondary choices, also former Executive Board members are very welcome to apply.

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
