All Seed Grant proposals were reviewed and ranked by a multi-disciplinary panel, including interventional neuroradiologists, endovascular neurosurgeons, and interventional neurologists. For this first award, it is noteworthy that the chosen grant was the top choice of all panelists.
Three additional grants are expected to be awarded in the next six months. The SNIS Foundation will fund these and future grants with private donations as well as select fundraisers sponsored by the Foundation.
"After three years of growing the Foundation, it is exciting to realize our goal of funding meaningful research work that aligns with our overall mission," said Jensen. "This is a milestone moment in the life of the SNIS Foundation and SNIS, and instrumental to the growth of our neurointerventional specialty."
Founded in 1992, the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) is represented by physicians who specialize in minimally invasive techniques to treat neurovascular conditions, including stroke, aneurysms, carotid stenosis and spinal abnormalities. Drawing on diverse backgrounds and expertise including interventional neuroradiology, neurosurgery and neurology, these physicians are continuing to forge new pathways in the development of the distinct specialty of neurointervention. Over the past two decades, practitioners of this field have paved the way for the scientific research and study that has resulted in new technology and revolutionary treatment approaches that have transformed the neurosciences.
