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

We hope all of our members are doing well.

In this latest newsletter we would like to remind you that the deadline for submission to the MAGMA special issue is already next month. Don’t forget to submit your glioma imaging paper.
We also need your help with our next GliMR events, so make sure you continue reading this newsletter.

Once again, if you have any updates that you would like to share with other members, please do let us know. Stay safe!

Call for Papers – submission deadline 30 June

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.
Since we are not meeting in real life, GLiMR is planning to organise regular webinars.

1st webinar – ISMRM Abstracts
  • Abstracts presented in the ISMRM 2021 Annual Meeting or any other glioma/MR conference
We encourage all of our members to submit their abstracts. This is an informal way to highlight your results to our community. Submission through email.
We are also currently looking for:
  • Volunteers: webinar organising committee
We specifically encourage early career researchers / students to volunteer, since this is a good way to network, increase your academic visibility and improve your CV. 
  • Suggestions for other specific topics and/or speakers

If you are interested just email us! 

GliMR is planning to host a Training School in 2022 to be held (possibly) in Ireland.
The topic of this event will be:
“Explainable Artificial Intelligence”
but now we need your help on the selection of specific topics.
You just need to fill out this form

This will only take a few minutes – thank you in advance!

If you want to join the Organising Committee, get in touch with Saritha.

‘Physiological MRI for precision radiotherapy of IDH-wildtype glioblastoma’

With the introduction of advanced MR techniques, the opportunity arises to visualize various physiological processes that provide information on microscopic tumour infiltration or high-risk areas of future relapse. The aim of this project is to introduce advanced MR maps visualizing cell proliferation, neovascularization and oxygen metabolism to create a more accurate and personalized target volume for radiotherapy planning of patients with glioblastomas.

‘Precise intraoperative histological sampling using 7T MRSI – Towards better evaluation of metabolic imaging in gliomas’

Congratulations to the winner and nominees
and a massive thank you to all the presenters

Job Opening

A 2-year postdoctoral position in functional brain connectomics in glioma at the University of Trentwill be available towards the end of 2021. This post-doc fits within a project funded by the Health Services Agency of the Province of Trento (Azienda Provinciale per i Servizi Sanitari).

More information on how to apply can be found here.   

Researcher of the Month

Congratulations to our Researcher of the Month: Patrick Tang
Don’t forget to nominate one of our colleagues for researcher of the month!
Patrick is a MSc student Technical Medicine at the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands. He won the GliMR Project Presentation Price and was rewarded a STSM during the latest GliMR Annual Meeting in February 2021.

As a graduate intern at the Dept. of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and the Dept. of Radiotherapy the goal of his project is to improve radiotherapy planning for patients with glioblastoma multiforme. With the introduction of advanced MRI techniques, brain maps providing information on cell proliferation, angiogenesis and oxygen metabolism are used to visualize microscopic tumour infiltration, a key characteristic of glioblastomas that complicates radiotherapy planning. 

“With my research we hope to take an initial step towards individualized radiotherapy to improve local tumour control or reduce late radiation-induced toxicity. In the future I hope to play an important role in bringing technology and healthcare together as a Technical Physician; it is exciting to see so many institutes working towards this goal at GliMR.” – Patrick Tang
