IAG's Chief Scientific Alliance Officer to Give Talk at University of Miami

Dr. Diana Dupont-Roettger, Chief Scientific Alliance Officer of IAG, will be speaking at University of Miami

The Chief Scientific Alliance Officer of IAG, Dr. Diana Dupont-Roettger, will be giving a virtual talk at the Clinical Brain Tumor Research meeting at University of Miami on 25 February 2021.

The title of the talk will be Advanced Imaging Approaches in Neuro-Oncology and Neurosurgery

Key discussions points include:

  • Advanced imaging methods to show tumour reoccurrence and early treatment related changes
  • The potential of Imaging Biomarkers: AI, Radiological Phenotyping, True Progression vs. Pseudo-Progression
  • Global imaging strategies for clinical trials
  • Virtual Reality: Fusion of imaging markers and digital pathology


About the University of Miami Brain Tumor Initiative

The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center Brain Tumor Initiative (BTI) strives to close the gap between pioneering research and promising treatments. We do this by exploring how cancers develop and progress and the intricacies of cellular interactions within tumors. By evaluating a tumor’s genetic profile and how it responds to medication, our researchers identify changes at the molecular level. In this way, we develop customized treatment plans using the latest evidence-based protocols.

To prevent or control tumor growth, we study a variety of factors, including how inflammation, immunity and conditions like obesity affect tumors. Some of our neuro-oncologic trials focus on immune-modulated tumor therapy using vaccines, radiation therapy and surgical procedures.
