Further information


It is with great honour that I declare this 3rd International Neuro Oncology and Brain Tumour Conference in Singapore 2018  open and  I regret my inability to personally attend owing to prior commitments.


Over the last 4 decades I have observed great progress in neuroimaging, surgical equipment , oncological research and treatment advances.


Improvements in operative microscopes, ultrasonic aspirators and laser and intra-operative image guidance has been most impressive.


Sadly there has been only modest improvement in improvement in survival in many brain tumour cases namely gliomas.


With improvements in MR and PET/MRI the ability to diagnose earlier has emerged and with DTI /tractography enhancing safety and the various forms of image guidance during surgery we have been able to perform safer and more aggressive resections. Neuroanaesthesia has also improved with better operating conditions being very obvious to us all. Sadly in glioma surgery extent of resection has not been reflected in significant improvement in survival for most patients with this devastating tumour.In the laboratory chromosomal and pharmacological studies have continued and again there have been periods of excitement and disappointment with adjuvant therapies.


Radiation therapy has been a major area of success particularly Cyber knife and Gamma Knife radiosurgery in treating vestibular schwannomas , metastases and pituitary tumours with minimal trauma to the patient. This is an exciting area of neuro oncologic treatment and work on  other lesions , including gliomas, larger than 2 cm hopefully may result in similar responses as we see with vestibular schwannomas ,i.e. near 97% response rate.I suspect it is only a matter of time!


As neuroscientists working in various areas including laboratory research, imaging, equipment, neuroanaesthesia, surgery, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapy we must remain aggressive and optimistic and look back on our achievements to date with pride.We must encourage our students to have the passion to seek and understand- they will have many cures and answers!


In closing, may you all enjoy, learn and contribute and I wish you a pleasant and memorable conference.


I look forward to meeting with you all at the 4th International Conference and I am honoured to have been invited to make this opening and introduction.


Thank you again
