The Neuro-oncological Working Group (in short NOA) in the German Cancer Society (Deutsche Krebsgesellschaft e. V.) is a working group consisting of over 300 members from the main disciplines of neurology, neurosurgery, radiotherapy, neuropathology, neuroradiology and medical oncology. Additionally, biostatisticians, computer scientists, neuropsychologists and some pediatric oncologists are also represented. It bundles information from the field of neuro-oncology and provides information about events and trials. Guidelines and study protocols are also provided.
“NOA IS A STRONG INTERDISCIPLINARY NETWORK THAT HAS SIGNIFICANTLY CONTRIBUTED TO THAT NOT ONLY THE THERAPY OF BRAIN TUMOR PATIENTS HAS CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVED BUT ALSO MORE AND BETTER NEURO-ONCOLOGISTS ARE TRAINED.”
