RSNA R&E Foundation Approves Over $4.7 Million in Grant Funding
The RSNA R&E Foundation Board of Trustees has approved over $4.7 million in radiology research and education funding this year, funding 36% of grant applications. Since its inception in 1984, the Foundation has awarded over $78 million.
“Because of the generosity of our donors, the RSNA R&E Foundation is able to spark research innovation that elevates our specialty and positions radiology as an essential partner in improving patient outcomes and clinical care,” said Satoshi Minoshima, MD, PhD, chair of the R&E Foundation Board of Trustees.
This year the Foundation will support 83 individuals at 47 institutions. In total, it has funded more than 1,600 investigators and educators and over 1,700 projects since its founding.
“The dollars invested are critical not only to the success of the 2023 grant recipients and our Foundation, but to the future of our specialty as a whole," Dr. Minoshima said.
For every dollar awarded by the Foundation, recipients have received 60 additional dollars in subsequent funding from other sources—a return on investment totaling over $4.5 billion.
“On behalf of the R&E Foundation Board of Trustees, we are profoundly grateful for the steadfast and generous contributions of our individual, practice group and corporate donors who make supporting these researchers and educators possible,” Dr. Minoshima said.
