CSF (Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation, Inc.) is a non-profit organization that was founded in October 2007 with the goal of raising awareness and finding a cure for Chiari malformation (CM), syringomyelia (SM) and related disorders.
CSF Network of Experts
The CSF Scientific Education & Advisory Board is made up of many internationally-renowned medical doctors, professors, scientists and experts. The CSF Board of Directors and Board of Trustees include community and business leaders, educators, legal experts, families and patients, who have long been advocates in the CM/SM community. Their skills and drive to develop, fund, and oversee CSF programs and research will improve the lives of the over one million families affected by Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and associated disorders in the US, alone.
