Each year, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation awards grants for research focused on early detection, improved treatments, and technological advances that will ultimately improve the outcomes for patients with brain aneurysms.
In 2020, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation awarded $375,000 in research grants to 14 recipients, the largest amount awarded in one year to date. Since its inception, the foundation — the largest private funder of brain aneurysm research in the nation — has distributed more than $3.5 million in research grants.
The Research Grant Committee is led by the foundation’s Medical Advisory Board president Robert Rosenwasser, MD, of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The committee reviews all grant applications to identify those of the greatest merit that align with the foundation’s mission.
Some families in our community who have lost a member to a brain aneurysm, or have a member struggling with the effects of a brain aneurysm, have found funding a Chair of Research as a way to fight this disease and honor their loved one. This program allows them to fund research in their honor or memory. Our grant program is unique because we connect the funder and the researchers to personalize the process for everyone.
