Society of Interventional Radiology Pilot Research Grant Program
Supported by C.R. Bard
All applications must be submitted online.
The Pilot Research Grant Program is designed to fund research in areas identified by the SIR Foundation as important to the advancement of interventional radiology and patient care. These grants generally address a specific hypothesis and generate preliminary data that could be used to justify or strengthen subsequent comprehensive applications to national peer-reviewed funding agencies. Grants may be issued to support the initial research efforts of faculty as well as those who have limited research experience.
Application Deadline: December 14, 2012
Grant funding of up to $25,000 will be made for pilot or seed grant-type projects that test a new idea or help support a new area or direction of research in interventional radiology.
Grants are available to full-time interventional radiology faculty and trainees with an MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent degree in educational institutions within the United States and Canada. Post-doctorate candidates are invited to apply.
Applications from non-Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) members will be considered, but such applications are required to have significant input and involvement by an SIR member.
Applications will be accepted from citizens of the United States or Canada or those who have permanent resident status therein. Permanent residents must submit documentation of their status. If an applicant is at an institution in the US or Canada and is on a visa, a letter from the department chair (for faculty applicants) or fellowship director (for trainee applicants) guaranteeing completion of the project will be required.
