Welcome to the second GliMR-newsletter. We are heading to the end of Grand Period 1 and we already reached some milestones: our website and social media are up and running, some STSM grants were distributed, the most popular glioma MRI-techniques were discussed and a GDPR-compliant consent form was developed.
GliMR still needs your help!
WG2 calls for help in translation and feedback of the GDPR compliant consent form
Send in all GliMR-related news and new publications
Apply for researcher of the month, or nominate one of your colleagues
Our first group of 8 GliMR-adventurers was awarded with a grant for Short Term Scientific Mission. Congratulations to Ruben, Umberto, Beatrice, Ayesha, Burcu, Fatemehsadat, Hande and Gökçe! Read more about the results of the first call and the awarded projects here!
GDPR compliant consent
GliMR efforts to generate a GDPR compliant consent to share data is paying off! We are ready to merge with the Open Brain Consent. Read more about it here!
At the moment, we have an English version, but we would love to have many translations. Working group 2 is reaching out for your help to translate and to get feedback. This template is GliMR’s basis to share future data, so please check with your local Data Protection Officer if this document works for your institution.
Additionally, GDPR constrains personal data usage and sharing outside EU. It turns out that deceased patients data aren’t personal, so if you have any legacy data, get in touch now.
WG2 NEEDS YOUR HELP!
GliMR researchers of the month
In this first #RotM, we present you two stars of the GliMR core group: Prof. dr. Yelda Ozsunar and Prof. dr. Patrícia Figueiredo.
Yelda, our STSM coordinator, is neuroradiologist and currently doing research at the Dep. of Radiology, in the Aydin Adnan Menderes University.
Additionally, she published a book and a music album, ‘Universal Symphony’, explaining the effect of electromagnetic waves and sound on our perception with current literature, poems, stories and music. She tries to express her ideas and senses about ‘How does neuroscience look through the lens of a woman scientist’.
Patricia is GliMR’s ITC Conference Grant Coordinator. This physicist is working at the Institute Superior Técnico, in the University of Lisbon. Currently, she is working in the fields of Biomedical Engineering, Medical Physics, Neuroimaging, MRI and Neuroscience, with current projects in ‘Imaging cerebrovascular physiology by functional MRI’ and ‘Imaging dynamic brain networks by EEG and fMRI’.
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
This COST Action aims to build a pan-European and multidisciplinary network of international experts in glioma research, patient organisations, data scientists, and MR imaging scientists by uniting the glioma imaging community within Europe and progressing the development and application of advanced MR imaging for improved decision making in diagnosis, patient monitoring, and assessment of treatment response in clinical trials and clinical practice.
