The SNIS Foundation was founded and works today to improve patient care by supporting the research and educational goals of our Society.  An essential part of that mission is providing the highest level of neurovascular care to patients around the world while also investing in the practitioners who are savings lives.

Throughout our history, SNIS has witnessed and been at the forefront of many changes in both medicine, in general, and what has emerged as a distinct specialty comprised of practitioners from various backgrounds including interventional neuroradiology, endovascular neurosurgery and interventional neurology. In recent years alone, the growth of our field is reflected in many advancements and changes, including the formation of the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery (JNIS); a vastly expanded Annual Meeting that hosts practitioners around the world and offers a separate Fellows Course for the newest members of our field; and even our society’s name change to the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) to reflect the neurointerventional community’s diversity – in both background and geography.


To facilitate higher-level training and scientific advancements in our field, the SNIS Foundation exists to fund three distinct objectives:


Continuing education of practicing neurointerventionists


Research grants for investigators


Research awards to be bestowed at the Annual Meeting.

By focusing on resourcing these specific areas, we both stimulate scientific study and discovery around treatment options for neurovascular conditions and ensure that current and future practitioners have the training and education that they need to give their patients the best chance to not only survive their diseases, but thrive.

The Foundation has facilitated incredible progress that is making a real difference in people’s lives, but we need your help to keep moving forward.  We invite you to invest in our field, our practitioners and the future of medicine.
