This volume provides a balanced and realistic review of the current state of glioblastoma, ranging from traditional histological review, molecular pathology of glioma, modern radiomics, neurosurgical focus, and integration of treatment plans by neuro-oncologists. The book reviews basic principles such as epidemiology and etiology, and modern 2016 WHO classification of CNS tumors. Chapters cover a general overview of common molecular techniques used in molecular pathology, molecular pathology in a developing country, key drivers of patient outcomes and predictors of response to radiation and/or chemotherapy treatment, and immunohistochemical surrogates for key molecular pathology. It concludes with reviews on radiomics, animal and stem cell models of glioblastoma, and a chapter on the emerging field of Glioblastoma Neuroscience.Precision Molecular Pathology of Glioblastoma is intended for pathology residents and fellows interested in glioblastoma, general surgical pathologists who need reviews on how to implement modern glioblastoma classification, as well as neuro-radiologists, oncologists, and radiation oncologists needing a holistic perspective to glioblastoma diagnosis and management.
Dr. Becker is a physician-scientist formally trained as anatomic pathologist in her home country of Brazil, with large experience in Neuropathology and Molecular Pathology of adult and pediatric brain tumors. She obtained her Neuropathology training at the University of Sao Paulo, campus Ribeirao Preto, a world-renowned institution and one of the premier academic centers for Neuro-Oncology in Brazil. Her Doctoral degree in Molecular Pathology was obtained under the mentorship from Dr. Rui Manuel Reis. She is currently the Research Neuropathologist (Senior Research Associate) in the Chakravarti laboratory at The Ohio State University, where she has worked in the discovery and validation of molecular biomarkers, development of new treatments with small molecule inhibitors and FLASH radiation, and elucidation of treatment resistance mechanisms in glioblastoma.
