Announcing cIMPACT-NOW: the Consortium to Inform Molecular and Practical Approaches to CNS Tumor Taxonomy

Abstract : The recent publication of the 2016 World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System (2016 CNS WHO) represents a significant advance in the classification of human brain tumors [ 1]. For the first time, a CNS WHO classification defines diagnostic entities by combining molecular and histological information. In doing so, the classification facilitates more precise diagnosis of well-understood entities and clearer designation of less-understood entities, which will in turn allow further study and likely future advances in their classifications.
