Meet Research Grant Recipient: Ben Strickland, MD

Ben Strickland, MD is a South Carolina native who attended college at Clemson University. Dr. Strickland attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine and recently completed a neurosurgery residency at the University of Southern California.

Dr. Strickland is currently a cerebrovascular fellow at Emory University.

Ben first became aware of the devastating effects of brain aneurysms in middle school after a close friend’s mother unexpectedly passed away from a rupture. He remembers the impact it had on the family and our community. As Dr. Strickland progressed into medical school, he felt connected with this patient population and, in residency,  found significant meaning in caring for aneurysm patients.

The support of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation is critical to pushing this project forward. Dr. Strickland will be able to continue this important body of work looking into the deleterious effects of cerebral vasospasm. This project will lay the groundwork for an upcoming large-scale clinical trial to prevent this pathology from negatively affecting our brain aneurysm patients.

Dr. Ben Strickland is the recipient of the Fight Like Frank and Patrick Fettuccia Chair of Research for $40,000.
