Welcome to the newest newsletter of COST Action Glioma MR Imaging 2.0
We hope that everyone is safe and healthy.
We would like to remind our members that we have some GliMR events coming up, including a webinar from Cercare Medical on September 16 (registration link below) andthe live stream of GliMR at the ESMRMB 2020 Meeting.
In this newsletter, we also highlight some calls, share some STSM updates and, as usual, we have our Researcher of the Month and a new list of publications.
If you have any updates that you would like to share with our community, just let us know.
WEBINAR – 16 September AI-driven analysis of Advances Imaging Biomarkers for In-Depth Tumour Assessment September 16, 17:00 CEST | 11.00 EST
Deep Learning for CT and MR Image Classification of Sinonasal Tumour Entities Institution: Institute of Technology Sligo, Ireland Supervisors: Dr. Saritha Unnikrishnan, Dr. David Tormey, Dr. Ian McLoughlin Deadline: 22/09/2020
So, please, send us your feedback, comments, and suggestions. We aim to submit on October 18th, 2020.

Researcher of the Month
Congratulations to our Researcher of the Month: Dr. Jan Petr
Don’t forget to nominate one of our colleagues for researcher of the month!
Dr. Jan Petr is the Clinical Translation WG Leader
Jan, leader of the GliMR WG for Clinical translation, is a researcher working at the Helmholtz-Zentrum in Dresden, Germany.
Co-author of the ExploreASL, pipeline aiming for harmonizing processing of ASL in multi-center studies, he focuses on analyzing data from contrast-free MRI techniques and joint analysis of multiple datasets with the aim of getting the methods closer to the clinical practice. His main research interests are neurodegenerative diseases and brain tumors including monitoring of the adverse effects of the treatment.
Besides GLIMR, he’s involved in several other initiatives for standardizing the acquisition and analysis of MRI data like BIDS and OSIPI.
Take a photo of your puzzle and tag us (@COST18206) – we will share the most original ones!
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.
