    NIH Grant Awarded to RSNA Research Scholar Grant Recipient

    Manu S. Goyal, MD, MSc, a 2015 ASNR/RSNA Research Scholar Grant recipient, secured a Research Project Grant (R01) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute on Aging, along with co-principal investigator, Andrei Vlassenko, MD.

    Dr. Goyal, assistant professor of radiology and neurology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, and fellow researchers will study whether levels of aerobic glycolysis in the brain provide resilience against aging and neurodegeneration. Specifically, researchers will study brain atrophy, aging-related changes in cognition and clinical conversion to mild-cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Dr. Goyal is also a co-investigator on a separately funded R01 project with Dr. Vlassenko and Marcus Raichle, MD, focusing on how brain metabolism relates to AD biomarkers.

    “The RSNA Research Scholar Grant was critical in getting me to this point, both in terms of protecting my research time and also in providing access to the RSNA NIH Grantsmanship Workshop, where I was able to develop my protocol for this R01 submission,” Dr. Goyal said.
