      R&E Foundation Seed The Future
    • The R&E Foundation will fund 80 innovative projects this year, totaling $2.9 million—a new annual funding record.

      This year’s recipients represent a wide range of subspecialties from 47 institutions, including three international recipients from China, Chile and Spain.

      Thanks to the contributions from our individual, private practice and academic group donors, and our corporate friends, the R&E Foundation was able to fund more than 30% of the applications received this cycle—a success rate far above that of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). SeeRSNA.org/Foundation for a complete listing of the projects your donations are funding.
