2nd International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

June 24, 2013
Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, 350 Community Drive, Manhasset, NY

June 24-25, 2013. Engineering/physics focused symposium on the motion of cerebrospinal fluid ( CSF )

Thank you to the conference Chairs: Bryn Martin (University of Akron, USA), Shaokoon Cheng (Neuroscience Research, Australia), Lynne Bilston (Neuroscience Research, Australia) and the Board members: Vartan Kurtcuoglu (University of Zurich), Frank Loth (University of Akron), and Paul Farrell (The Farrell Law Firm, P.C.).

This symposium was sponsored by The Monkton Institute, Candida Lancaster, and the Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation.


The number of investigators conducting numerical and experimental simulations to better understand the dynamics of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has continued to increase since the 1st International CSF Dynamics Symposium held in Zurich, Switzerland. Building on this momentum, we held the 2nd International CSF Dynamics Symposium to continue exchange of ideas toward modeling of CSF.

Approximately 25 invited speakers from around the world presented their research that involves either experiments or computational methods to better understand normal physiology and diseases related to CSF motion, such as Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and hydrocephalus.

All presentations were video recorded and will be posted, with free access, on this website in order to maximize exposure of the symposium research idea transfer. Check back soon.

Dear Ms. Poppe, Congratulations to you and your staff for the excellent 2nd CSF Dynamics Symposium. Sincerely yours, Abraham Shulman, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Dear Dorothy, Congratulations, I heard only good things from people who attended the symposium. I'll be in touch. Regards, Candida Lancaster

Dorothy, It was very nice to meet in NY last week.  Thank you again for all that you have done for the support of research in this critically needed area. Best, Mark Wagshul, PhD

Thanks a lot for your implication to organize the conference in NY it was for me a great event to meet and discuss with all the participants. I am sure cause of this meeting new things will be done in the next future to improve patients. Avec toute mon amitié, Olivier Baledent
