A webinar, aimed at medical undergraduates, focusing on the initial management of a patient suspected to have a brain tumour.


Mr Vasileios Apostolopoulos

Mr Vasileios Apostolopoulos completed his neurosurgical training in London. Early in his training he developed an interest in brain tumour surgery. He carried out research and completed a thesis in real time intraoperative navigation for brain tumour surgery at Imperial College London. He also completed a Royal College of Surgeons fellowship in brain tumour surgery at Southampton University Hospital. Currently he works as a Consultant in Oncological Neurosurgery at Oxford University Hospitals. His interest is awake surgery for eloquent brain tumours and multimodality image guidance.


Mr Mario Ganau

Mario Ganau is a consultant neurosurgeon at Oxford University Hospitals with interest in neurotrauma and complex spine surgery. This interest not only includes the surgical aspect of both subspecialties, but also extends to the related clinical and pre-clinical research. He holds a PhD in Nanotechnology and one in Biomedical Engineering, which largely contributed to his extensive research track. Following completion of postgraduate studies as global clinical scholar in research trials at Harvard Medical School, and a spinal fellowship at Toronto University, he moved to Oxford where he has been a key player in the development of a dedicated neurotrauma service.
