Glioblastoma is the commonest and the most lethal brain tumor. In this book, 71 experts from around the globe come together to give a timely, unique and exhaustive compilation of preclinical and clinical knowledge and concepts of glioblastoma under three sections: understanding glioblastoma in the lab; managing glioblastoma in the clinic; and upcoming cutting-edge innovations. In section one, seven chapters provide a comprehensive overview of the molecular genetics, biological hallmarks and current state-of-the-art preclinical animal models in glioblastoma research. In section two, eight chapters deal with the many diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic management challenges physicians are facing every day. In section three, six chapters try to capture innovative approaches and techniques that might have the potential to gain impact in the field in the coming years.
