Research Scientist Award

The Foundation of the ASNR and Partner Organizations established an award in 2011 to provide research opportunities for PhD investigators to advance the science of Neuroradiology. Scientific research is the foundation upon which the clinical practice of Neuroradiology is built. Research scientists in partnership with radiologists have traditionally led the development of new imaging technologies and image-guided procedures. The directive of these awards is to assist young scientists in their transition to becoming independent investigators in Neuroradiology research as well as to help established investigators initiate new projects with relevance to Neuroradiology. Although any research area in Neuroradiology will be considered, the awards emphasize basic science and general and interventional Neuroradiology.
