PhD midterm presentation by MD Adrian Madarasz

On December 16, 2022 at 2.00 pm. Title:  “Circulation and clearance of cerebrospinal and brain interstitial fluid in murine models of hemorrhagic stroke". Location: Theodor Kocher Institute, University of Bern.

MD Adrian Madarasz is enrolled in the PhD program Cutting Edge Microscopy and conducts his thesis under the supervision of Dr. Steven Proulx at the Theodor Kocher Institute.

Abstract of his presentation: Hemorrhagic stroke is associated with high disability and mortality rates. Most therapeutic approaches lack broad agreement, especially for the reduction of brain edema. By inducing disease models for intracerebral and subarachnoid hemorrhage in mice followed by in vivo imaging with near-infrared tracers and labels, we assess changes in brain interstitial and cerebrospinal fluid circulation and investigate potential efflux pathways for fluids and cells from the subarachnoid space.
