Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Dr. Jeffrey Thomas Stroke Shield Foundation (JTSSF) is dedicated to preventing stroke and optimizing stroke treatment and recovery.

The prime directive of JTSSF is to promote and support clinically relevant, important stroke research through accelerated funding of projects chosen for their potential to change stroke incidence and treatment. JTSSF is unique among organizations in its ability to select such projects, derived from its clinical expertise in treating stroke and cerebrovascular disease every day.

JTSSF is unique in that it only funds research and programs aimed at stroke. We believe that stroke is preventable, however, scientists who seek National Institutes of Health funding for cardiovascular disease and/or stroke research receive a disproportionately small amount of NIH dollars. The NIH invests only 4 percent of its budget on heart research and a mere 1 percent on stroke research. (Obviagele, 2013).

What is needed now is to encourage novel research approaches in the field. From our perspective within clinical stroke treatment and research, we understand the importance of directing targeted research funds to the scientists and investigators who can move the best ideas in stroke research prevention and treatment forward.

The Dr. Jeffrey Thomas Stroke Shield Foundation (JTSSF) awarded its inaugural three research grants, totaling close to $75,000, to researchers at Stanford University, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and The Ohio State University in 2014.

The research conducted by the grantees directly reflects JTSSF's mission to promote and support clinically relevant, important stroke research projetcs chosen for their potential to change stroke incidence and treatment. These research projects will provide important data on brain repair (treatment), neuro-rehabilitation, and computer technology to aid recovery after stroke.
