This is the newest newsletter of COST Action Glioma MR Imaging 2.0.

In this newsletter, we present you a new webinar series, bridging GliMR’s technical and clinical aspects. Don’t forget to register for the first webinar on Tuesday.

Additionally, we are proud to announce that GliMR has officially been extended for six months! During this period, we plan a new summer school. This is your chance to shape this event by joining the organising committee. You can also still apply for STSM’s!

Last but not least, WG1 recently published two reviews on preoperative glioma characterisation. You can read all about those reviews in this newsletter. 

If you have any updates that you would like to share with GliMR, please email WG5.

Registration is closed, but you can still register to attend virtually.

Webinar Series

Bridging GliMR’s technical and clinical aspects

GliMR is proud to present a new webinar series. We will start with a first webinar session on Tuesday 18 april. 

Bárbara Schmitz Abecassis and Radim Jancalek will focus on advanced MRI for preoperative glioma characterization. More info hereRegister now!


WG1 reviews published

We are proud to announce that the two reviews from WG1 on the use of advanced MRI on preoperative glioma characterization have been published!

We would like to congratulate Gilbert Hangel, Lydiane Hirschler, and Jan Petr, and Bárbara Schmitz Abecassis for managing this project. Also, a big congrats to the whole team for writing, editing, and providing images!

Part 1 on dynamic susceptibility contrast and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, arterial spin labeling, diffusion-weighted MRI, vessel imaging, and magnetic resonance fingerprinting can freely be downloaded here.

Part 2 on magnetic resonance spectroscopy, chemical exchange saturation transfer, susceptibility-weighted imaging, MRI-PET, MR elastography, and MR-based radiomics applications can be found here.



Short term scientific mission

Interested in a research stay with one of our GliMR members? You can now apply for a Short Term Scientific Mission grant to support your travels and stay. 

The STSM call for GP4 is now open. Read all criteria and apply here!


GliMR 2.0 → Reloaded! 

Our COST Action has officially been extended.

Due to the COVID pandemic we had the opportunity to apply for a 6 month extension of GliMR 2.0. Where our initial end date was coming up rapidly (11th of September of this year), we are very happy to announce that we will now be able to extend our activities until the 11th of March 2024.

Read more about our plans for the final six months here!

GliMR summer school 2.0

We are searching for volunteers to join the organising committee of our second summer school. This summer school will focus on the clinical use of advanced MRI biomarkers for glioma diagnostics.

If you are thrilled to get advanced MRI in a clinical setting, seeking to add this experience to your CV, and expand your international network by actively shaping our training school, get in touch with WG5!

Need an image? We can help!

GliMR’s WG5 has a new visuals team ready to help with research infographics!🧠🖥️  

Do you have any ideas, suggestions or eventual requests we could help out with? Send us a message!



Rui Simões 

Rui has a background in biochemistry (University of Coimbra, Portugal) and extensive experience in preclinical MRI, MRS, and MRSI of mouse glioma models. During his PhD (Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain) and postdoctoral training (Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, USA), Rui harnessed dynamic multi-nuclear MRS to probe tumor metabolism, which he recently extended to deuterium metabolic imaging of mouse glioblastoma as a Marie Curie fellow (Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal).

Currently, Rui is a research associate at i3S (University of Porto, Portugal) where he is leading the new Preclinical MRI lab, focused on translational MRI applications for non-invasive characterization of tumor heterogeneity and treatment-response.

Rui is also a founding member of the ISMRM Iberian Chapter (https://ismrm-iberian.eu/), and the local host of the 2023 GliMR meeting, in Porto.
