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.
Mutations in a number of genes coding for cilia structure, function, and regulation, have been associated with congenital hydrocephalus; these are called ciliopathies.
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University have found that a malfunction in specific genes triggered hydrocephalus in mouse models. The findings were published in the journal, Neuron.
Timothy Vogel, MD, will join the Robert H. Pudenz Lectureship scientific research panel at the Hydrocephalus Association’s 13th National Conference on Hydrocephalus, July 9-11, 2014, in Portland, Oregon.
The Hydrocephalus Association (HA) has selected Timothy Vogel, M.D., from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, to receive funding for an additional research grant in HA’s 2013 grant cycle, for his work in basic science that improve our understanding of the root causes of hydrocephalus.
