The Brain Aneurysm Foundation invites applications for basic scientific research directed at early detection, improved treatment modalities, and technological advances that will ultimately improve outcomes for patients with brain aneurysms, as well as projects that are translational, clinical/outcome, early detection, imaging, and SAH/SAH complications focused, as well as AI-focused projects. Any project with the potential to advance basic scientific, translational, and clinical brain aneurysm research will be considered.

Our goal is to have a diverse pool of candidates that reflect the prevalence of the disease across all backgrounds and its impact on individuals globally.

If an AI-focused project is selected, you will be eligible for an additional $5,000 grant from Rapid AI. Please CLICK HERE for more information.

Grants will be awarded this year in varying amounts ranging from $20,000 to $50,000 each. Funds may be used for start-up projects or supplementary funding. Funds will not be granted for indirect costs. Salaries, including graduate student or postdoctoral fellows, may be requested at the principal investigator’s discretion.

Grant awards will be presented at the Brain Aneurysm Foundation’s Annual Research Grant Awards Dinner during the month of September, which is Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month in many states. The dinner will take place in Boston, MA on September 12, 2024, at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in conjunction with our 30th Anniversary celebration. Grant awardees or an appropriate representative must be present to receive the award and present a poster of the research during the opening reception. There is a morning session on September 12, 2024 as well, where all current and past year recipients must attend as a collaborative information session.

Please contact Christine Buckley at (781) 826-5556 or email christine@bafound.orgwith any questions or concerns.
