It is the most common malignant primary intracranial tumors of central nervous system. Brain tumor can affect brain function if they grow large enough to press on surrounding nerves, blood vessels and tissues.

In this short course, a group of clinicians and scientists with vast experience share their research work on brain tumors, including meningiomas, and their treatment.

In this self-study, self-paced course, you will learn about:

  • An Overview of Brain Tumor
  • High Grade Meningiomas: Current Therapy Based on Tumor Biology
  • Meninges Outside the Meninges: Ectopic Meningiomas and Meningothlelial Proliferations
  • Overview of Radiosurgery for Intracranial Meningiomas
  • Rare Brain Tumors with Infrequent Clinical ManifestationsAwake Surgery for Brain Tumors
  • Immunotherapy against Gliomas
  • Crossing Blood-Brain Barrier with Nano-drug Carriers for Treatment of Brain Tumors

This study material will be a useful resource for students and medical practitioners of oncology, neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-oncology and radiation oncology.
