Research

friends of a girls photo

Adrienne was extremely proud of her education and, and our team is committed to continuing that trend. Our main aim is to fund ongoing research into cranial aneurysms in memory of Adrienne and ensure that while her life was cut so tragically short, her legacy will not be. To date, we have worked with the CABER team at the University of Limerick who have an extensive history in aneurysm research in diagnostic rupture behavior involving the use of both solid and fluid mechanics tools and has been involved in international studies of blood flow behavior in cranial aneurysms. More recently, we have partnered with the Beaumont Hospital National Neurosurgical Centre to establish Ireland’s first ever National Brain Aneurysm and Vascular Malformations Patient Registry. Our hope is that this will lead to a great understanding of the neuropsychological outcomes in patients undergoing interventions for brain aneurysms and vascular malformations.

We are a completely voluntary organization with 100% of our time and all funds raised directly impact brain aneurysm research. Together we can make a real difference to the future of our family and friends.
