- Who We Are
- Our Research Focus
JTSSF works to identify and fund a wide range of the most promising projects, from basic biological science to studies addressing social and behavioral aspects of stroke prevention. JTSSF is actively seeking to provide seed money grants for projects that are important, achievable, and innovative that will ultimately lead to stroke prevention and a better treatment and quality of life for stroke sufferers.
The JTSSF research grant program is the heart of our commitment to preventing stroke and improving stroke treatment. Our research grant program funds investigations that advance stroke research in three key areas:
Our goal is to fund as many grants as possible that have the greatest potential to make an impact on stroke occurrence and damage. The Foundation, under the direction of our Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board, (a group of distinguished professionals who represent a range of stroke and medical care and research including clinical care, community health and support services), is well suited to assess promising research and direct funds where they will make the most impact. After our Scientific Advisory Board reviews and ranks grant proposals, the Board of Directors votes to fund the top projects.
