With the support of the NOA, the YoungNOA was founded as an independent working group of neuro-oncology-oriented young researchers.
The YoungNOA sees itself as an open association of young stakeholders from the basic sciences and the clinical fields of neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology and radiation oncology.
Promotion of young talent
The YoungNOA members have set themselves the goal of helping to shape the continuing medical education curriculum in the field of neuro-oncology as well as actively supporting scientific networking and the development of young neuro-oncologists throughout Germany.
Furthermore, the collaboration of the young scientists should contribute to the implementation of innovative research ideas, e.g. in the context of clinical studies.
