RSNA members can take an active role in moving the specialty forward by supporting—or applying for—the Research & Education (R&E) Foundation grants that represent the future of radiology and related scientific disciplines.
R&E Foundation grants are available for medical students, residents, fellows and faculty at all levels. Applicants must be RSNA members at the time of application. From hypothesis-driven basic science, translational and clinical studies to development of new strategies for teaching methods, the Foundation supports projects that are changing the way radiologists practice and learn.
In 2012, the Foundation funded 79 grant projects totaling $2.9 million—and that’s just the beginning. Surveys show that for every dollar funded by the Foundation, grant recipients will receive an additional $30 from sources such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for further research. The $37 million funded by the Foundation since its inception in 1984 equates to more than a billion dollars in subsequent research dollars channeled into the radiologic sciences.
"I was fortunate to receive an R&E Foundation Research Seed Grant that helped me initiate and lay the foundation for my basic science interventional radiology research career," said Ron Gaba, M.D., an assistant professor of radiology at the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago. "The experience gained during that study allowed me to secure a basic science research grant from the American Cancer Society, which will help me prepare and transition to NIH-level funding proposals."
