WFNOS Magazine

WFNOS Magazine

EANO together with the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) in the USA are publishing the World Federation of Neuro-Oncology Societies (WFNOS) Magazine.

The aim of the WFNOS Magazine is mainly twofold. The first is an educational scope by means of reviews, interviews, pros and cons debates from experts on topics of clinical interest . The second aim is to spread information on neurooncological activities worldwide by providing news from National and International Societies of NeuroOncology, nurses and youngster groups.  

The current editors are: Wolfgang Wick, Heidelberg, Germany, President EANO and Patrick Wen, President, SNO and managing editor for EANO Roberta Rudà, Torino, Italy and for SNO Nicholas Butowski, San Francisco, USA

All issues can be found below.

WFNOS Magazine Volume 2 (2017) Issue 3

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.

On behalf of my colleagues from the EANO board, I would like to wish all readers a successful completion of 2017 and a great start into the year 2018 with one highlight, our EANO conference in Stockholm in October, already determined.

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