The Foundation of the ASNR

Founded in 1995, The Foundation of the American Society of Neuroradiology (FASNR) is the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR), a 501 (c) 6 professional society for Neuroradiologists, located throughout the United States and North America. FASNR is based on the principles that Neuroradiology is dependent on new knowledge and discovering and educating Neuroradiologists is fundamental. Quality mentoring is essential to the development and continuation of this specialty.

The American Society of Neuroradiology funds imaging-based research that advance our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease, help identify new treatment strategies, provide information to improve care for people with dementia, and further our knowledge of brain health and disease prevention. Our awards support investigators at every professional stage and always include categories specifically designed to help talented young scientists establish careers in Alzheimer’s imaging research.
