Corporate giving

Your company can be a part of supporting our effort to advance radiologic research and education through grant funding. Our grant recipients are working in various subspecialties including:

  • Breast/mammography
  • Diagnostic radiology
  • Interventional radiology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Quality improvement

Grantees investigate disease processes, revolutionary treatment methods and effective ways to deliver treatment to patients.

Our Vanguard Program gives corporations the opportunity to safeguard the future of radiology. You can provide the seed money our investigators need to make major discoveries in their field. To show our appreciation, we always recognize those who support endowments for named grants.

Dr. Leo L. Tsai, MD, PHD, MSc“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.”
