FAIRFAX, Va.The Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation's Discovery Campaign, which seeks to further the growth of minimally invasive medicine into new areas of discovery, announced a major corporate pledge to that initiative.

"This support accelerates the pioneering work of interventional radiology, opening doors to progress and enabling new ways to deliver the most advanced technology in the field," noted McLennan, an interventional radiologist with the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. "We thank St. Jude Medical Foundation for coming forward to support us on this venture," he noted.

"St. Jude Medical Foundation supports the work of the Society of Interventional Radiology and recognizes its contributions to the field of minimally invasive medicine," said Angie Craig, St. Jude Medical Foundation president and vice president of corporate relations and human resources for St. Jude Medical, headquartered in St. Paul, Minn. "The Discovery Campaign aligns well with our foundation's mission to advance the state of medical knowledge. We hope our contribution will help to augment this important area of study that will ultimately improve and save lives," she added.
