Maximillian Niyazi (LMU): Future of glioblastoma therapy: Old concepts reloaded
Tuesday 29 November 2022, 12:00pm - 01:00pm

Abstract: Glioblastoma is the most aggressive brain tumor and prognosis remains dismal. This talk will focus on all details you ever wanted to know around optimal imaging, contouring & guidelines from a European perspective, the role of dose escalation and why many trials might have failed, pathomechanisms of radiation necrosis and potential ways to tackle this deadly disease in future. Sincerely hoping for a very active exchange of ideas.
