Welcome to the newest newsletter of COST Action Glioma MR Imaging 2.0.
We hope that everyone is safe and healthy.
In this newsletter, we have a few updates, including the announcement of a webinar from Cercare Medical, a new section summarising the most recent glioma imaging publications as well as a call for papers. This month, we also welcome new members to our Action and, as usual, we introduce our Researcher of the Month.
If you have any news or updates that you would like to share with our community, please do let us know. Don’t forget to share GliMR – we are a network that supports diversity, equality and inclusion .

List of publications
Joana Pinto (WG5) has compiled a list of the most recent publications related to glioma imaging. This list can be found in a new section of our website.
Any tips or suggestions regarding this section are more than welcome. WG5 is also recruiting new members who would like to be involved in this section.
Elli Paal is a Neurosurgeon at the North-Estonia Medical Centre in Tallinn, Estonia
“I am a person of a very clinical background, a medical doctor and specialised in neurosurgery. Treating tumours surgically and following patients up is a regular part of my job. Gliomas are a very hot topic in all the related spheres – both clinical and pre-clinical- , and is a topic of particular interest to me – possibilities to differentiate deep seated lesions without putting the patient at risk from surgery and anesthesia, potentially better follow up. All of that is also an important part of the emotional and psychological well-being of the patient and therefore I am extremely excited to be a part of this project, so full of young enthusiasts eager to find solutions!” – Dr Elli Paal

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.
