Meet Research Grant Recipient: Stacey Wolfe, MD, FAANS

Dr. Stacey Wolfe is a cerebrovascular neurosurgeon, Professor of Neurological Surgery and Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine, Residency Program Director, and Director of Neurointerventional Surgery. Following Endovascular and Cerebrovascular/Skull Base Fellowships at the University of Miami, she served as a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy. 

As a cerebrovascular neurosurgeon, Dr. Wolfe has treated hundreds of aneurysm patients, both with clipping and coiling.  While she loves to be able to help people by treating their aneurysms, there are many who are devastated by aneurysm rupture which cannot be improved with surgery or endovascular techniques.  So many families have been destroyed by this disease and are in desperate need to understand how these lesions form so we can prevent them from growing and rupturing. 

The BAF grant is critical in providing funds to investigate these mechanoreceptors on a single-cell genomic level, which gives critical and specific information on how these receptors influence aneurysm development. This grant also allows collaboration with other aneurysm researchers and foundations to build on ongoing projects to bridge the differences between ruptured and unruptured aneurysms and to build new collaborations to create a large aneurysm tissue bank to answer these important questions more quickly.

Stacey Wolfe, MD, FAANS is the recipient of the Austen L. Dunn and Christopher C. Getch Chair of Research (sponsored by the CV Section) for $40,000.
