R&E Foundation Flourishes through Partnerships
In 2013, the RSNA Research & Education (R&E) Foundation was able to fund 83 grants totaling more than $3 million—the highest amount awarded in the Foundation's history.
"This success is due in large part to the support of our many loyal partners," said James P. Borgstede, M.D., chair of the R&E Foundation Board of Trustees. Dr. Borgstede will deliver the Report of the R&E Foundation today at 4 p.m. in the Arie Crown Theater.
"From individual, private practice and corporate donors, to the investigators who apply for funding and the department chairs, advisors and mentors who support them—the Foundation could not continue to flourish without amazing supporting partners," Dr. Borgstede said.
The recipients in the R&E class of 2013 are performing research in a number of different subspecialty areas using many modalities and techniques, Dr. Borgstede added. "Their promising projects have clinical and translational implications that will most certainly move our specialty forward."
Meeting attendees can learn more about the work of past grantees, as well as current opportunities for funding and avenues for support, at the R&E Foundation Booth in RSNA Services.
