Radiomics, genomics, artificial intelligence… Not a single neuro-imaging conference without talks within these fields. But how should we interpret these results? How can we use them in our own research? And more importantly, how can these play a role witin the fied of neuro-oncology? GliMR is unites top researchers within these fields to answer these questions.

Join our summer school from 25 to 27 July 2022 in Dublin!
