Welcome to the newest newsletter of COST Action Glioma MR Imaging 2.0     

We have finally reached the last GliMR newsletter of 2020. Although this year was somehow different than we expected it to be, the GliMR community has been extremely productive. We have several good news that we are pleased to finally share with you.

Additionally, we would like to remind you to acknowledge GliMR when submitting an abstract for (virtual) conferences and to apply for a ITC conference grant.

Happy holidays!

If you have any updates that you would like to share with other members, please let us know.

2nd Annual Meeting
Call for Abstracts
GliMR invites abstract submissions for presentation during the 2nd GliMR annual meeting.

Two types of abstracts can be submitted: classic‘ and ‘project‘ (planned/ongoing projects, results are not required).
We encourage early career researchers to use this opportunity to showcase their (ongoing) work, set-up collaborations and receive an award.

More information on abstract submission can be found here
Contributors needed
This is your chance to actively contribute to our annual meeting.

GliMR is still searching for panellists and moderators. Additionally, we are looking for enthusiastic early career researchers who are interested in organising one of the informal ‘meet & greet’ sessions.
Fill in this form if you are interested.

Call for Papers
MAGMA GliMR Special Issue
GliMR is a guest editor for the 2022 Special Issue of Magnetic Resonance Materials in Physics, Biology and Medicine (MAGMA), the official journal of the ESMRMB, entitled:
“Micro- to Macroscale Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Glioma”

The aim of this special issue is to promote research that focuses on advancing MRI to improve glioma imaging diagnostics. The deadline for manuscript submission is 30 June 2021, 23.59h. The complete call for papers can be found here.

We would like to encourage our members to submit their work, as the special issues of MAGMA reach a broad audience and are highly cited.
We are looking forward to your submissions.


International Brain Tumour Alliance

GliMR established a new collaboration with the International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA). Read more about it here. 

Additionally, GliMR published an introductory article in Brain Tumour Magazine: World Edition 2020/2021 (pp. 165-166).


First successful Webinar

On September 16th, GliMR hosted its first webinar, in collaboration with

More than 40 GliMR-members followed the live event; read more about it here. If you missed it, you can watch it here.

Researcher of the Month

Congratulations to our Researcher of the Month: Bárbara Abecassis
Don’t forget to nominate one of our colleagues for researcher of the month!
Bárbara Abecassis is a PhD student and a member of WG5

Bárbara is responsible for our social media accounts Twitter and Instagram.

Bárbara is a PhD student at the Gorter Center of High Field MRI, at the Leiden University Medical Center, in The Netherlands. She has joined WG5 and has also been responsible in the past few months for the social medial dissemination of GliMR’s news.

In the upcoming years, Bárbara’s project aims to investigate the value of 7T MRI when imaging glioma tumours, with an especial interest in exploring metabolic markers. The first part of her project has been on technical optimisation mostly focusing on CEST and MRS techniques. “However, I’m looking forward for the clinical application part of my work, where I’ll be scanning glioma patients.” – Bárbara says. It’s a project within the Medical Delta consortium, where health care and clinical research questions meet technological solutions.
