Petri Honkanen Foundation


The target of Petri Honkanen Foundation is primarily supporting research, which aims to develop methods to recognize the most rupture-prone intracranial aneurysms; to cure the aneurysm before the rupture; and to improve the outcome and prognosis of patients carrying aneurysms and/or suffering from SAH caused by aneurysm rupture.

The long-term goal of Petri Honkanen Foundation is to promote the development of new tools to estimate the rupture risk of an unruptured aneurysm as accurately as possible; as well as the development of safest and most effective methods to prevent the rupture with its often devastating sequlae

Petri Honkanen Foundation

  • awards individual grants to the research and development of dedicated areas in brain aneurysm research
  • awards the Petri Honkanen Young Neurosurgeon Course Award that covers the registration fee to the annual Helsinki Live Demonstration Course in Operative Microneurosurgery, and reasonable travel and accommodation expenses. Eligible applicants are neurosurgical residents or young neurosurgeons (less that 40 years) who conduct basic, translational or clinical research on intracranial aneurysms.
