Marcel Chatel is the Head of the Neurology Department of the Nice (France) University Hospital (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire [CHU]). Much of his activity has focused on the development of neuro-oncology. A student of Prof. Jean Pecker and Prof. Olivier Sabouraud at the CHU in Rennes, France, his interest in neuro-oncology began with projects conducted in cooperation with Prof. Jean-Marie Scarabin and Dr. Franšoise Darcel. His collaboration with Prof. Jean-Marie Brucher, established in connection with the diagnostic difficulties related to the first stereotactic biopsies, dates back to the 1970s. A Research Fellow in neuropathology at the Harvard Medical School, then at the Stanford Medical Center in the Laboratory of Prof. Lucien Rubinstein, his research activity in the neuro-oncobiology of neuro-epithelial tumors later concentrated on positron imaging, together with Prof. J.M. Derlon (Dept. of JF Jolliot, Orsay, France), and the metabolism of polyamines, in collaboration with the Laboratory of Prof. Moulinoux in Rennes. Prof. Chatel is a member of the EORTC Brain Tumor Group and a founding member of the Association of French-speaking Neuro-oncologists (Association des Neuro-oncologues d'Expression Franšaise [ANOCEF]), created in 1992. In addition to his current position as head of the Neurology Department at the CHU in Nice, he is the coordinator of the Neuro-oncology Group.
