• 2011 Report of the RSNA Research & Education Foundation

  • Mission Statement: The mission of the RSNA Research & Education Foundation is to improve patient care by supporting research and education in radiology and related scientific disciplines through funding grants and awards to individuals and institutions that will advance radiologic research, education and practice. 

    This was another outstanding year for the RSNA Research & Education Foundation. Through the collective efforts of our many donors, dedicated volunteers serving on committees, study sections and review panels, and the steadfast leadership of the Board of Trustees, programs were implemented to advance the mission of the R&E Foundation. Following is a summary:

    Research and Education Grants
    The demand for funding continues to climb, for the second year in a row, nearly 200 applications were received by the Foundation.  Of these, the Foundation was able to fund 72 grants totaling over $2.5 million in awards in 46 institutions.

    Grant Program Highlights
    The R&E Foundation continues to play a critical role in radiologic research. In the past five years, R&E funding has nearly doubled, and to date, the Foundation has funded approximately 900 grants totaling well over $34 million. Low administrative expenses enable the Foundation to maximize the support of grant awards. On average, every dollar awarded by the Foundation results in over $30 of additional funds awarded from sources such as the NIH.  

    Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award
    One hundred and fifty-nine residents and fellows in North American departments of radiology and radiation oncology were recognized for their research activities by both the R&E Foundation and their departments. Nominated by department chairs and program directors, the residents and fellows were presented personalized awards and their names added to wall plaques in their departments that serve as tributes to past recipients.

    Individual, Private Practice and Corporate Giving
    For the fifth consecutive year, individual giving exceeded $1 million, and a single bequest in the amount of $1.5 million was received from a long-time RSNA member. The Foundation’s Charitable Gift Annuity Program continues to expand to new states and attract interest. Presently, twenty-seven private practice and academic groups are supporters of the Visionaries in Practice giving program and corporate support for the Foundation remains strong.  

    The Board of Trustees appreciates the support of the RSNA Board of Directors; members of Foundation committees, study sections, and review panels; and the individual, group and corporate donors who have made the year a tremendous success.

    Respectfully submitted,
