The Chiari Symposium Series features invited speakers that present recent advances in Chiari malformation and related research. The meeting is physically held at the University of Akron, Engineering Research Center, Room 203 or 303, usually on the first Friday of every month at 9:30am EST (GMT-5). Researchers are also welcome to attend online via GoTo meeting software (contact CCRC for invitation). A list of upcoming and past speaker presentations is shown below.
