This one-day workshop will provide a detailed update on the changes in the CNS tumour WHO 2021 classification covering diagnostic aspects of adult and paediatric brain tumours. The workshop will also address the advances in methylation profiling of intrinsic tumours as well as meningiomas. The workshop will be complemented by an interactive practical session where participants will have the opportunity to discuss the diagnostic approaches using CNS WHO 2021 classification and methylation profiling. The cases included in the interactive session will be available to view in a digital format prior, during and after the workshop for registered participants.
The target audience for this workshop are neuropathologists, pathologists, neurooncologists, neurosurgeons, neuroscientists and other health care professionals involved in adult and paediatric brain tumour diagnostics, treatment, or research.
