Additional Funding Opportunities
SIR Foundation offers an array of funding opportunities that aim to support research and projects dedicated to progressing the field of interventional radiology through the development of innovative therapies and advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and overall quality of life. Periodically, SIR Foundation issues a special request for proposals (RFP) rooted in research priorities and supported by special funding available due to the generosity of our members and corporate partners.
Additionally, physicians who are interested in conducting a research trial, registry, or other type of study, should submit a letter of intent (LOI). The LOI should briefly describe the projects significance, proposed data outcomes and explain the investigator's intent for SIR Foundation’s role in the project, if applicable. Once submitted, the review committee will evaluate and provide their feedback.Learn more
