Neuro-oncology is a rapidly developing field. A continuous evolution in the understanding of the molecular underpinnings of central nervous system tumors has helped reconfigure the classification of brain tumors. More importantly, it has laid the path forward for the development and investigation of new therapeutics. The authors discuss the classification of brain tumors and novel therapies in brain tumors as well as promising treatments underway.
