Image result for Andres Morales La MadridWe are thrilled to be part of the second international Gliomatosis Cerebri (GC) meeting, conceived and shaped with the same goals we had in the first meeting in Paris in 2015, the consolidation of global and collaborative research projects in GC. We expect to have researchers and physicians from leading programs in North America and Europe sitting in the same room discussing relevant issues on diagnostic, therapy and research projects specific for GC, in order to elaborate a roadmap that will delineate the best way to find the answers we need to better fight this challenging disease. After our meeting in Paris, some important steps have been taken. However, we are far from understanding what makes some infiltrative gliomas so invasive and aggressive, and what we can do to stop that process from happening.

This second meeting and workshop will be another wonderful opportunity to provide an active, hands-on environment for a selected small group of researches, to share their ideas, and expose their advances and problems in developing understanding of GC. The final goal is to continue with a shared real agenda for sponsored network of international collaboration according to a pre-planned program project in order to build knowledge and advancement for the cure of this inexorably fatal disease. We really hope we could join our efforts to face this challenge.

Our most sincerely welcome.
