Meet Research Grant Recipient: Edgar A. Samaniego, MD, MS

Dr. Edgar A Samaniego is an Associate Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Radiology at the University of Iowa.  He is the program director of the Vascular Neurology Fellowship.  Dr. Samaniego is a neurologist with expertise in stroke and neurointerventional surgery.  He has published more than 150 manuscripts, most of them related to aneurysm research.

He is passionate about aneurysm research, as there are many unsolved questions about aneurysms that need to be addressed.  During Dr. Samaniego’s career, he has seen many patients die from ruptured aneurysms, and to this day, we still do not know why aneurysms form.

The goal of his research is to identify aneurysms that are at risk of rupturing through brain MRIs.  Dr.  Samaniego’s project would scan patients, and based on the information obtained from the scans; they will advise the physician if the aneurysm needs to be treated or just observed.  This would decrease the number of procedures and healthcare costs related to unnecessary interventions.

Dr.  Samaniego is the recipient of the Renee Joyce Chair of Research for $40,000
