Bobby Jones CSF Research Colloquium

2017: Recent Research Published in Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia

CSF hosts an annual colloquium where experts can discuss their research and help advance the field of study into Chiari, syringomyelia and related disorders.

The 2017 CSF Research Colloquium took place on October 7, 2017 at the Aloft Boston Seaport Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. A group of interested doctors, scientists, engineers, psychologists and other experts came together to discuss recent research being published (within the last 1.5 years) or about to be published on Chiari malformation and syringomyelia.

Experts shared their own results and theories and engaged in strong discussions with others to help guide the ultimate direction of the research for the future!

*If a lecture is listed but not yet available, we may be waiting on confirmation and approval from the speakers! We will upload them as soon as possible. Check out previous Colloquia presentations in the meantime!
