A very narrow bridge: Translational research — Vector: "e whole entire world is a very narrow bridge….and the main thing is not to be ruled by fear.”
–Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, 18th century Ukranian Hasidic mystic
My lab studies hydrocephalus, probably the most commonly treated pediatric neurosurgical condition. Most people think hydrocephalus was solved 50 years ago with invention of the shunt. But the kids I see with brain water problems, and their parents, don’t think the challenge is over. They ask: Why do I keep having headaches? Why do I keep having operations? Hydrocephalus needs new thinking, new imaging, new drugs, new interest. Our patients want us to innovate, and come up with something better."
