Research Grants


The Maine Brain Aneurysm Awareness Committee was pleased to award the 11th annual “KAT-Walk & Karo-5K Research Grant for 2023” in the amount of $10,000 during the Brain Aneurysm Awareness event on September 24, 2023 in Portland, Maine.

Angie Leclerc, Critical Care and Mary Sorcher, Neurocritical Care Research at Maine Medical Center have developed and implemented a new program at MMC called NeuroCOPE.

Healthcare workers in the Neuro ICU may suffer distress while caring for neurologically injured patients in the acute phase of their illness. NeuroCope provides regularly scheduled, interprofessional conferences focused on patient recovery, outcomes, and patient & family experiences.

We are so very thankful of the wonderful care the entire medical team at MMC provide our Brain Aneurysm and Stroke families during a very difficult time and this grant is our way of showing our full support and appreciation to all that take care of us.

Over the past 14 years, with your support, the Maine Brain Aneurysm Awareness Committee has awarded over $125,000 to research projects conducted in both basic science and clinical applications. To date, some exciting work has been produced in finding better ways to treat and manage Brain Aneurysms, SAH, vasospasm, and to understand the mechanism for aneurysm growth.

Thank you to everyone who donates and assists our efforts to increase Brain Aneurysm Awareness, Education, Funding of Research, and general support of the Brain Aneurysm community in Maine and northern New England.
