Since its inception in 1984, the Foundation has awarded $44 million in grant funding for 1,100 young investigators. The real value, however, is far greater--surveys show that for every $1 granted by the Foundation, recipients have received over 40 additional dollars in subsequent funding as principal investigator or co-investigator from other sources, such as the NIH, NIBIB, and NCI. In the final analysis, $44 million for jump-start grants to investigators has resulted in $1.5 billion in funding for radiology research and education.
The RSNA Research & Education Foundation’s mission 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.
