      • diagnostic radiology
      • interventional radiology
      • neuroradiology

    Geoffrey D. Rubin, M.D.  Geoffry D. Rubin, M.D. used a 1994 Research Scholar Grant to fund research that led to the development and improvement of CT angiography as the principal means for assessing aortic disease.

    His team's work included refinement of MDCT techniques, invention of vessel measurement tools, and insights into aortic stent-grafts.

    • Protect the specialty. The medicine of Radiology should be done by radiologists. The R&E Foundation has awarded over 1,000 grants since its inception to do just that.

    • Receive an over $40:1 return on your investment.Surveys show that for every $1 granted by the Foundation, recipients receive $40 additional grant dollars as principal investigator or co-investigator from other sources such as the NIH, NIBIB, and NCI.
