The AneuRisk project is a scientific endeavour that aimed at investigating the role of vessel morphology, blood fluid dynamics and biomechanical properties of the vascular wall, on the pathogenesis of cerebral aneurysms. The project has gathered together researchers of different scientific fields, ranging from neurosurgery and neuroradiology to statistics, numerical analysis and bio-engineering. The project involved MOX Laboratory for Modeling and Scientific Computing (Dip. di Matematica, Politecnico di Milano), Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics (Dip. di Ingegneria Strutturale, Politecnico di Milano), Istituto Mario Negri (Ranica), Ospedale Niguarda Ca' Granda (Milano) and Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico (Milano), and has been supported by Fondazione Politecnico di Milano and Siemens Medical Solutions Italia.
