Travis Fund September Challenge
September is brain aneurysm awareness month. This year, we are working hard to fund research projects focused on brain aneurysm research efforts undertaken by Dr. Juan Cebral and Dr. Saleet Jafri. The Travis Valentine Memorial Aneurysm Research Fund at Mason enables Mason scientists to focus on groundbreaking research.
There are multiple efforts in brain aneurysm research going on at the College of Science. The current efforts of both Cebral, Professor of Bioengineering, and Jafri, Director of the Neuroscience Program, will be funded by the Travis C. Valentine Memorial Aneurysm Research Fund this academic year. Support from the Travis Fund is extremely valuable because of its flexibility which allows us to focus on otherwise unfunded efforts that we believe will have an important impact on the clinical practice and management of aneurysms.
Donations will go towards vital projects such as the evaluation of small regularly shaped aneurysms, development of healing models after aneurysm treatment and the study of genetic variants leading to intracranial aneurysms. Donations during the September Challenge will go directly towards supporting George Mason University graduate research assistants, supporting faculty during the academic year and summer, covering conference and publications costs to share findings, and purchasing vital equipment to execute research.
