Please participate in this survey about MGMT analysis in neuropathology: MGMT promotor methylation status is used to facilitate clinical decision making. However, different methods and different cut-off levels are used to define a tumor as methylated or unmethylated. We hope you as a neuro-pathologist will be able to spend a couple of minutes to answer a survey about how you approach MGMT analysis in your department. The results are planned to be reported at the European Association of Neuro-Oncology meeting in October 2018 in Stockholm. The results will also be reported in the Euro-CNS Journal Clinical Neuropathology.

European Examination in Neuropathology 2019: The next examination will be held in the autumn of 2019, in London (University College London, Institute of Neurology, Division of Neuropathology). Read more about the examination here.

New European Fellows in Neuropathology: The Examination Committee and Executive Committee of Euro-CNS are happy to announce that the following three candidates successfully passed the European Board Examination that was held from 4-5 November 2017 : Drs. Se Hoon Kim (South Korea), Stefanie Brendecke (Norway) and Simin Laiq (Oman). The EFN examination constitutes an assessment of candidates’ knowledge of diagnostic neuropathology and their ability to apply that knowledge in the clinical practice.

Fellowship Training Program. Call for candidates!

The Euro-CNS fellowship training program is intended to facilitate short (maximum 2 months) diagnostic training opportunities in either Tumour or Muscle and Nerve pathology for trainees in neuropathology. The individual training plan for each Fellow appointed to the scheme will reflect the skills and knowledge that are required by the home Institution and which can be implemented upon the trainee’s return. For more information, please visit the ‘Fellowship Training‘ page on this website. Applications can be submitted at all times.


Mission of Euro-CNS
Euro-CNS aims to promote and maintain the harmonisation of neuropathology training and clinical practice throughout Europe, and to promote the science of neuropathology and neuropathology research. Euro-CNS has programmes of scientific and clinical activity to support European Neuropathologists at both senior and junior level. Courses and congresses are held regularly to promote interest in the discipline, to facilitate the exchange of scientific information between members, and to help researchers and clinicians stay current with the latest advances in neuropathology. A European Neuropathology Exam is organized each year.


Euro-CNS Courses

Euro-CNS CME “Course Tumours of the CNS”
 3-5 October 2018, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In three days this course and workshop covers the 2016 update of the WHO classification (typing and grading) of CNS tumors, supplemented by lectures on clinical and neuroradiological aspects, and molecular diagnostics relevant for daily clinical practice. The lectures will be given by a group of well known surgical neuropathologists. Histological slides of the whole spectrum of CNS tumors are available, and multiple time slots are planned for personal practical exercise as well as for interaction with the experts.
