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.
What if you could prevent or stop the development of hydrocephalus after a brain bleed or develop a shunt that doesn’t get clogged? That’s what the 2018 HA Innovator Award grantees are hoping to do through their research projects.
HA-funded researchers were awarded funding through the Department of Defense (DoD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) to study acquired hydrocephalus, with a particular focus on hydrocephalus that develops after a brain injury.
Could a genetic mutation explain why some people with congenital hydrocephalus experience neurological problems? That’s what a new study by Dr. Kristopher Kahle of Yale University suggests. The study was recently published in the journal, Neuron, and highlighted by Yale News. Read the full article
A recent study published in Nature, Dr. Chay Kuo, out of Duke University, discovered a mechanism that may lead to the development of Postinfectious Hydrocephalus.
The Hydrocephalus Association is pleased to announce the funding of three hydrocephalus researchers through the HA Network for Discovery Science (HANDS), Innovator Award.
