The abstract submission deadline for the 63rd Annual Meeting of the SRHSB is soon approaching. The program will focus mainly on research in hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, and spina bifida, with the days and times designated for each topic contingent upon the abstracts submitted. They are also planning special sessions on brain development and transitional care for patients with hydrocephalus and spina bifida

The SRHSB is a unique meeting that mixes research with fun activities to allow meaningful interactions between colleagues.

Historically, the Canary Islands have been a meeting point between Europe, Africa, and America and is the perfect location to bring together international knowledge about hydrocephalus and spina bifida.
