    RSNA R&E Foundation Opens Grant Application Process in October

    The RSNA Research & Education (R&E) Foundation awards millions of dollars each year to promising researchers and educators in radiology. Many past recipients have credited an R&E grant for sparking a career in academic research and opening doors to additional funding from national resources.

    While the online application process will open in October, candidates are encouraged to begin the process early. Start by identifying an intriguing research question, finding an appropriate scientific advisor/mentor, developing a hypothesis and a plan for testing the hypothesis and starting to write the detailed research plan.

    Deadlines for applications begin in January. Visit RSNA.org/Foundation to read about current and past funded projects, discover the grants available and learn how to apply.

    NIH Grantsmanship Workshop

    The NIH Grantsmanship Workshop introduces participants to the process of preparing a competitive research or training grant application. Designed for junior faculty in academic centers who wish to pursue a career in radiologic research, this didactic workshop is led by faculty who are leading researchers and have extensive experience in the grant application process. Topics covered include elements of a good grant proposal, understanding the review process, and planning the proposal.

    The workshop takes place Saturday, Nov. 25, from 1 to 5 p.m. at McCormick Place in Chicago. Workshop attendees must be registered for the RSNA annual meeting and add the workshop to My Agenda at RSNA.org/Annual-Meeting.
