The RSNA Research and Education (R&E) Foundation Board of Trustees has approved more than $5 million in radiology research and education grants for 2019.
This year's money will support more than 100 recipients from 48 different institutions. Since the program's inception in 1984, the foundation has provided more than $60 million to some 1,500 projects and 1,400 investigators. According to RSNA, there has been a 50-to-1 return on the organization's investment when it measures the additional support to the researchers from the federal government and other funding agencies.
"By supporting these outstanding projects proposed by innovative researchers and educators, collectively our RSNA community helps to ensure a better future for patients and those who serve them," said Dr. Thomas Grist, chair of the R&E Foundation's board of trustees, in a statement. "The board of trustees expresses its deep appreciation for the individuals, practice groups, and corporate partners who make this support possible."
