Each year, The Joe Niekro Foundation grants funds for research projects targeting aneurysm, AVM or stroke research. These grants enable investigators (MDs, DOs or MD-PhDs) to conduct pilot projects that address a specific hypothesis and generate preliminary data in preparation for major grant applications to corporations, foundations and governmental agencies.

The grants are open to:

  • University-based or government medical facility -based investigators at all levels with academic appointments.
  • Investigators in a clinical practice not affiliated with a University or government medical facility.

Nature of Projects:

Any research related to brain aneurysms, brain arteriovenous malformations or fistulas, including, but not limited to:

  • Applications of advance technologies and sciences
  • Development of diagnostic or therapeutic technology
  • Morphologic and functional imaging that addresses biologic or clinical questions
  • Comparative effectiveness analyses and/or outcomes analyses

It is the intention that the seed data from these projects will indicate feasibility and appropriateness of the research prior to applying for further funding; therefore, emphasis is placed on research deemed to have the most potential for future funding.

We are currently funding only direct costs.

The successful project applications include a method of dissemination of project results (e.g., presentation at regional or national medical meetings and publication of results in a peer-reviewed medical journal).
