NIH Research

Hydrocephalus research funding is far behind other conditions with similar prevalence numbers. Total NIH funding for hydrocephalus research in 2011 was only $6.4M; by comparison, NIH funded $151M in Parkinson’s Disease research. In 2016 and 2017, that number stayed steady at $6.8M and $6.5M, respectively. In the current funding environment, maintaining our current funding level is good.However, hydrocephalus research needs to become a research priority for more laboratories, clinics, and the NIH.
