Ways to give

Advancing IR through research

SIR Foundation is a research incubator and resource provider in clinical research, identifying research topics, organizing consensus panels and providing clinical trial planning grants to help bring more IR trials to fruition. Foundation grants provide research investigators, from medical students to established practitioners, with essential funding to collaborate with renowned physicians and researchers on new procedures that will become tomorrow’s standard of care―and yield an impressive 25-to-1 return on investment via the acquisition of external funding.

Through support of our mission, you are enabling these powerful programs and you are making a difference in the lives of millions of interventional radiology patients worldwide.

Why I support SIR Foundation

"I support SIR Foundation because this is the only organization dedicated to IR research. This is the group that supports innovations to help IRs provide better care to our patients, not only helping to mature new technology but also validating services. We cannot depend on anyone else to do IR research; we must provide the foundation with the funds and tools to support our practices." - Pioneer Circle donor, Major Gifts Task Force member and SIR Foundation Vice Chair Katharine L. Krol, MD, FSIR
