From June 21 to 24, 2017, the Society for Research into Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida (SRHSB) Annual Meeting will take place. SRHSB is a 61-year old Society that is unique in combining research and clinical interests in both hydrocephalus and spina bifida. The conference will take place in St. Louis, MO at the Eric P. Newman Educational Center on the WUSM campus. Young investigators are also invited to apply for the Guthkelch Award, which will give $2,300 to the best presentation.
Abstracts and Guthkelch Award submissions are due February 15, 2017.
This year, SRHSB will join with the International Children’s Continence Society (ICCS), led by Paul Austin, a pediatric urologist at WUSM, for a comprehensive conference of about 300 professionals. The ICCS is a very active group with an international membership 2-3 times the size of the SRHSB. Because the ICCS shares the SRHSB’s interest in spina bifida, there will be a full day for combined presentations by members of both Societies. There will also be a Special Symposium on Transition of Care in Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida and several excellent invited presentations on fetal treatments for myelomeningocele and tethered cord.
