Before using Gliolan®, neurosurgeons must attend a training course to inform them how to use the medicine safely and effectively during
surgery as required by the EMA. These are held in the following UK locations:
- Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge
(Mr Stephen Price & Mr Thomas Santarius)
- King’s College Hospital, London
(Prof Keyoumars Ashkan & Mr Ranj Bhangoo)
- Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham
(Prof Colin Watts & Mr Ismail Ughratdar)
- Salford Royal Hospital, Salford
(Miss Konstantina Karabatsou & Mr Pietro D’urso)
English speaking courses are also available in Europe.
Courses consist of lectures as well as a sit in during a live fluorescence guided surgery. Participants will receive a handout and an official
certificate. The training follows the regulation of European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the safe and effective use of gliolan.
