Welcome Address 2013

MDC Berlin

We are pleased to announce that the Brain Tumor Meeting 2013 will take place at the Max Delbrück Center für Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin (Germany) on May 23-24, 2013.

In summer 2000 Berlin neuroscientists, neurosurgeons and neurologists focusing on brain tumors initiated this scientific conference. It was repeated in 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011 - throughout this time the Brain Tumor Meeting gained national and international attention and attracted many leading scientist working on gliomas and other 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 speakers were invited to present their newest data on these topics. Furthermore, abstracts for oral- and poster-presentations are invited and the best presentations will be awarded prices.

We expect exciting scientific exchange and invite you to join this meeting.
