International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

2022: 6th CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

The sixth CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium took place on June 16-17, 2022 at the Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville, Florida. 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, such as syringomyelia and Chiari malformation.

Participants discuss their own research and bounce ideas off one another to better comprehend these poorly understood pathophysiology of CSF disorders. Thanks to Dr. Malisa Sarntinoranont, Dr. Marianne Schmid Daners, The University of Florida, and the Hard Museum of Art for graciously hosting this year’s symposium.

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.
