Welcome Address 2019

We are pleased to announce that the 10th Brain Tumor Meeting will take place at the Max Delbrück Center für Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin (Germany) on May 23 - 24, 2019.
In summer 2000 Berlin neuroscientists, neurosurgeons and neurologists focusing on brain tumors initiated this scientific conference series. It was repeated in 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017 - throughout this time the Brain Tumor Meeting gained national and international attention and attracted many leading scientist working on brain tumors.
The main focus of the meeting is to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary scientific exchange especially between scientists and clinicians. Recent discoveries on the role of glioma stem cells, on the interaction of gliomas with their microenvironment and on glioma cell death pathways have altered our understanding of glioma biology.
Internationally renowned speaker agreed to present their newest data on these topics. Furthermore, abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited and the best presentations will be awarded a price.
We expect exciting scientific exchange and invite you to join this meeting
