  • Corporate Giving - Vanguard Program

  • RSNA R&E Foundation grants advance radiologic research and education across multiple subspecialties, including breast/mammography, diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, quality improvement, and many more. Our grantees are finding answers about disease processes, revolutionary treatment methods, and the most effective ways to deliver treatment to patients. Your corporation can be a part of supporting radiology and the related sciences by safeguarding the industry's future.

    This year, we are launching the Inspire-Innovate-Invest Campaign to meet the growing demand for grants. The R&E Foundation seeks to raise $17.5 million to fund grants in radiologic research and education, bridging gaps in funding for promising investigators and educators. Corporations can support the Campaign by making a multi-year commitment to donate.

    Our Vanguard Program is another opportunity to support the Foundation. The program recognizes companies who support endowments for named grants. As partners in the pipeline of innovative research and education, Vanguard companies provide seed money to establish investigators whose work will lead to major discoveries.

  • Tsai
    “I consider this grant to be a major launching point as I transition from my residency and fellowship training into a faculty position. This was the first major funded project I have managed as a principle investigator, and the experience was invaluable. The exposure I have received from this award has also been tremendously beneficial; it has certainly played a major role during my job search, as it substantiates my intent to pursue a career in radiology research as a physician scientist.”
