SNIS Foundation Bestows First Grant Award For Cutting-Edge NeuroInterventional Research
Date:7/31/2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The SNIS Foundation recognized its first Seed Grant awardee today with $25,000 to fund a translational research project.  The first award since the Foundation's inception in 2011, the gift was presented at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) 11th Annual Meeting in Colorado Springs, CO.

Representing physicians who specialize in neurointerventional approaches to neurovascular conditions, SNIS formed the SNIS Foundation, in part, to ensure investment in scientific research and discovery that enables practitioners to provide the highest level of care to patients who can benefit from neurointerventional treatment.  The Seed Grant is a one-year gift that enables young investigators (MDs, DOs, or MD-PhDs) to conduct pilot projects that address a specific hypothesis and generate preliminary data in preparation for major grant applications to corporations, foundations and governmental agencies.

The first recipient, Daniel Cooke, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco, was awarded the grant for his innovative work in facilitating first-time evaluation of endothelial cells harvested from  devices utilized in neurointerventional procedures to treat ruptured and unruptured aneurysms. By obtaining these tissue samples during a standard procedure, and analyzing genetic expression at the single cell level, Cooke and his team aim to advance neurointervention by utilizing their study of endothelial cells to offer insights into the mechanisms of aneurysm formation, evolution, and — in some cases — rupture.

"This is exciting and innovative work worthy of continued exploration and support from the SNIS Foundation," said Lee Jensen, MD, Professor of Radiology, Neurology an
