  • The main feature of this book is that it consolidates and elucidates information that is currently scattered
  • With a focus on translational research, this book is perfectly suited to a field such as neuro-oncology where the scientific basis is undergoing dramatic advances
  • Each chapter author, a leader in their subspecialty, has been carefully selected by the editor so that the reader is offered material of the highest calibre

Neuro-oncology is one of the most exciting and rapidly evolving areas of oncology. In recent years there has been a remarkable increase in activity in the field, from basic science through to the clinic. This is reflected by advances in the understanding of the biology of CNS malignancies which have informed the development of novel and successful therapies.  In this environment it is essential to facilitate communication and understanding of new ideas and concepts.

 

Emerging Concepts in Neuro-Oncology is written with this in mind: to encourage collaboration across traditional boundaries and promote translational research for patient benefit. The book moves from concepts in the scientific basis of neuro-oncology in part one, through models of brain cancer in part two, to emerging concepts in clinical practice in part three, with a focus on translational research.

 

This book will be an essential read for neuroscience researchers, cancer researchers, neurosurgeons and clinical oncologists as well as anyone with an interest in this exciting, dynamic field.
