Dear Colleagues, Scientists and Friends,
It’s a proud privilege to invite you all to the temple city, Bhubaneswar for the 12th Annual Conference of the Indian Society of Neuro-Oncology from 9th to 12th April, 2020.
Significant advances have occurred over the last few decades in various specialities dealing with tumors involving the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. These include improvements in neurosurgical equipment, diagnostics as neuro-imaging and neuro-pathology and adjuvant therapies as radiation therapy, chemotherapy and biological therapy. This is coupled with improved understanding, impetus and focus on basic research in these tumors. The annual ISNOCON provides a common platform for these multi-disciplinary discussions. Renowned international and national faculties from varied clinical spectrum as neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-radiologists, neuro-pathologists, radiation oncologist, medical oncologists, neuropsychologists and palliative care will present work on their clinical experience and latest advances in technology. They would be accompanied by researchers and scientists working on these heterogenous groups of tumors in their cutting-edge labs, trying to understand the physiology and behavior of these tumors better. This “comprehensive lab to clinics platform” for neuro-oncology clinicians and basic science researchers would help in evolving better strategies for improved results.
Bhubaneswar derived from the word Tribhubaneswara, which literally means the Lord (Eeswara) of the Three Worlds (Tribhubana), which refers to Lord Shiva. It is the capital and the Smart city of the Indian state of Odisha. It is a centre of economic, educational and cultural importance of East India. It has good connections by land and rail and reasonable air connectivity.
The organising committee invites you all to contribute, learn and enjoy the ISNOCON 2020.
