Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation awards $191,000 in grants
Date:5/19/2009

Post-doctoral candidates may also apply. This grant is designed to fund research in areas identified by the SIR Foundation as important to the advancement of interventional radiology and patient care. This grant generally addresses a specific hypothesis and generates preliminary data that could be used to justify or strengthen subsequent comprehensive applications to national peer-reviewed funding agencies. Grants may be issued to support the initial research efforts of faculty as well as those who have limited research experience.

    This year's three recipients are

  • Rajoo Dhangana, M.D., Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, R.I., "The LEAD Interventions Study (Lower Extremity Peripheral Arterial Disease Interventions: Percutaneous-first Approach vs. Surgical-first Approach and Their Impact on Amputation Volumes Among Medicare Beneficiaries)";
  • Joseph Erinjeri, M.D., Memorial Sloan-Kettering Center, New York City, N.Y., "Mediators Underlying Local Inflammation and Treatment Response Following Thermal Ablation of Tumors"; and
  • Weibin Shi, University of Virginia School of Medicine, Charlottesville, Va., "Identification of Yin Yang-1 as a Major Gene Contributing to Neointimal Formation."

Student Research Grant The Student Research Grant is designed to foster an interest in research by funding a summer research project conducted by an undergraduate medical student in an area identified by SIR Foundation as important to the advancement of interventional radiology and patient care.

The nine recipients of the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation's Student Research Grant are

  • Brad Barnett, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md., "Evaluation of MR-visible ThermaSphere Microspheres for Simultaneous Chemoembolization and Thermal Therapy for Liver Cancer";
  • Eugene Duke, "Correlation of Quantitative MR Perfusion Par
