The Brain Aneurysm Foundation Announces 2008 Research Grant Recipients
Date:8/21/2008

Research to Target Early Detection to Reduce Death Rate of Millions with Unruptured Brain Aneurysms

BOSTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Brain Aneurysm Foundation announced today that Dr. Bernard Bendok, Dr. Douglas Cook and Dr. Satoshi Tateshima were named the 2008 grant recipients for brain aneurysm research.

"We are thrilled to announce all three recipients at our second annual Brain Aneurysm Grant Program," said Christine Buckley LeBlanc, Executive Director of The Brain Aneurysm Foundation. "With one in fifty people affected by a brain aneurysm, providing funding is a primary focus and we hope to continue our efforts in providing ground-breaking research and education by awarding additional grants in the medical field of brain aneurysms."

Of Northwestern University, Dr. Bernard Bendok will aim to better define the role of inflammation in brain aneurysms to open avenues for prevention, early detection, screening and therapy.

From the Toronto Western University Research Institute, Dr. Douglas Cook's research will focus on identifying specific genes which are related to a condition called vasospasm, which is the narrowing of a blood vessel after it has been in contact with blood after aneurysm rupture.

Dr. Satoshi Tateshima will study how and why the wall of the aneurysm weakens over time in the hopes of helping doctors make appropriate clinical decisions in the management of patients with a small aneurysm that show some change in shape and size over time.

This marks the second year the Foundation has awarded research grants to study brain aneurysms, their potential causes, and the factors that may impact the development of brain aneurysms. The $40,000 in grant money will be awarded on Wednesday September 17, 2008 at The Union League of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA.

Robert Rosenwasser, M.D., FACS, Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Chair of the Research Grant Committee explains, "We were pleased by the number of and quality of the grant proposals we received during the application process. We look forward to working with the recipients as they undertake their research and we hope these projects will help expand our understanding of brain aneurysms."

The evening's ceremonies will include a number of leading researchers and clinicians in brain aneurysms by industry leaders.
