International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

2017: 4th CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

The fourth CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium took place on June 19-20, 2017 at the shared Georgia Tech/Emory campus in Atlanta, Georgia. This biennial conference brings together scientists, engineers, clinicians and mathematicians from around the world to discuss the underlying mechanisms that cause disorders of CSF flow, like syringomyelia and Chiari malformation.

Participants discuss their own research and bounce ideas off one another to better comprehend these poorly understood mechanisms. Thanks to Dr. John Oshinski and Dr. M. Keith Sharp for organizing this year’s scientific program.

Bobby Jones CSF is proud to once again support this incredible meeting of the minds. This support is made possible by a generous grant from the Monkton Institute, Inc.
