In this installment of our Meet the Innovator Award Grantees Blog Series, we interviewed Dr. Aditya S. Pandey, one of four scientists who received a 2020 Innovator Award. Dr. Pandey’s team is testing the use of acetazolamide (Diamox) directly into the ventricles to determine if it can prevent hydrocephalus.
French startup Neurallys is developing an implantable intracranial pressure (ICP) monitor for hydrocephalus. The device continuously measures, records and sends ICP data to a patient’s smartphone via a Bluetooth connection.
Learn about Dr. Stavros Taraviras, one of four scientists who received a Hydrocephalus Association 2020 Innovator Award. Dr. Taraviras is working to turn scar tissue back into ependymal cells as a novel therapeutic strategy for hydrocephalus.
In the United States, the standard treatment for idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (iNPH) patients is a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS). But a new study explores the effectiveness of lumboperitoneal shunts (LPS), which have also been shown to improve iNPH symptoms and are widely used in Japan.

For our Meet the Innovator Award Grantees Blog Series, we interviewed Dr. Engin Deniz, one of four scientists who received a 2019 Innovator Award. Through his research, he hopes to determine how cilia, small hair like structures that move CSF, contribute to post-traumatic hydrocephalus.
Individuals Diagnosed with Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Show Improved Quality of Life after Shunting
A new study found that shunting improved quality of life for people living with Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (iNPH).
In the second installment of our Meet the Innovator Awardees Blog Series, we interviewed Dr. Brandon A. Miller, one of four scientists who received an Innovator Award grant.
In our first installment of our Meet the Innovator Awardees Blog Series, we interview Dr. Bernadette Holdener, one of four scientists who received a Hydrocephalus Association 2019 Innovator Award.
Add your hydrocephalus story to the MyPaTH Story Booth Project to help researchers better understand the hydrocephalus patient experience.
There is a lot we do not know about how hydrocephalus develops and how to best treat the condition across our many communities. Our 2019 Innovator Award recipients are looking to change that.
Families and researchers from across the country came together on Nov. 3 to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of HA’s Research Initiative. The event, held in St. Louis, MO, highlighted the successes of our research investments and honored the trailblazers who started it all.
