Dear all,

Please accept my sincere apology for this long overdue email to all the members of The Hong Kong Neurooncology Society since I was nominated to take up the baton from Dr. Stephan Yau as the president of Hong Kong Neuro-oncology Society.  My special thanks to Dr. Yau for all his effort and contributions in the past years.

Attached, herewith, the society’s structure, mission and proposed resource income, together with the proposal of our first project – Hong Kong Brain Tumor Registry. I contacted the director of Cancer Registry Dr. Wong and to my very surprise, they compliled a pilot study from 2014-2016. In the discussion, we found that the input from doctors, particularly, neurosurgeons from different clusters to validate the codes and diagnoses would be very helpful and important. I, thereby, call for the assistance from different clusters to give a hand. In the private sector, the Cancer Registry has already been  collecting tissue specimen for gliomas and they will, in a later phase, try to collect benign tumors as well. Thereby, the collaborations from the private neurosurgeons and oncologists will be utmost helpful. 

I was honored to be invited to the business meeting of Asian Neurooncology Society Business Meeting  2018 in Beijing where I proposed the establishment of Asian Brain Tumor Registry. The idea was supported by the majority of the Asian neurooncology societies with enthusiasm. We all thought that it is about time to kick start a project that may take us to the next status level as the western neurooncology societies and meetings by collaborations. 

The AGM will be on 28 Feb 2019. We have invited an overseas speaker from Mayo Clinic to update us on the latest development in treatment of glioma. And the sponsor may also provide a training session of the use of  TTField Novocure Device for treatment of GBM. The council meeting will start at 6:00pm, followed by lecture at 6:30pm then dinner. The venue of the AGM will be at Sky 100, Ritz-Carlton Hotel. I am hoping to see the attendance of all the council members so that we can sign the financial document and discuss about the agenda in the business meeting before the lecture and training. I would also like to know the number of attendance that evening. Please kindly let me know so that I can prepare the venue. 

With this email, I wish everybody together with your family a Happy 2019!

Best regards,

Jenny Pu
HKNOS President

Dear friends in neurosurgery, pediatrics and adult neuro-oncology,

You might have learnt of the First Molecular Brain Tumor Course organized by me, on behalf of the Hong Kong Division of International Academy of Pathology on May 18-20.

http://www.hkiap.org/braintumor/

The key speakers are Dan Brat of Chicago (adult brain tumors) and Cynthia Hawkins of Toronto (pediatric) and myself.  All three of us were in the Consensus Group of the WHO 2016 Brain Tumor Classification.  A number of eminent clinicians (Godfrey Chan, Herbert Loong, Ying Mao) will also be speakers.  The first two days are lectures and the third day is a laboratory day.  This is a course (and not a conference) with the main aim being teaching and
learning; there will be plenty of time for your questions and interactions and full handouts will be provided.

The laboratory day is already sold out.  A limited number of places are still available for the first two lecture days.  The full program is available at the website for your scrutiny.

I look forward to seeing some of your fellows there.

Regards
H K Ng
Pathology, CUHK
