FAIRFAX, Va.The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Foundation announced the second year of collaboration with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's (HHMI) prestigious Medical Research Fellows Program. Created with an eye toward the future of the specialty, SIR Foundation will provide funding for one medical student conducting preclinical research in interventional radiology during 2013. The online application is available at http://www.hhmi.org/grants/individuals/medical-fellows/.
