Welcome to the first GliMR-newsletter. GliMR 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. This Action intends to progress 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. More information can be found on our website.
Our community has been starting up successfully over the last few months, and it is time to keep you all informed on our progress. From now on, you will receive a GliMR newsletter every two months, with all recent news, calls and updates. Additionally, in the next few weeks, a survey will be distributed to collect more information on available expertise and data.
On Nov 27th 2019 the WG2 joined forces with the Open Brain Consent to create a GDPR compliant template for patient information and consent, as well as a data user agreement that can be used in your local data repositories. Read more here.
