ACR Announces FCRI Grant Application Period Now Open

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) has released a request for applications for its Fund for Collaborative Research in Imaging (FCRI) Grant. The FCRI Grant is designed for unique one-time investments in the most compelling, innovative research ideas that ultimately lead to the advancement of the practice of radiology. ACR welcomes projects related to the domains of its Research Committees: Molecular Imaging, Pediatric Imaging, Cardiothoracic Radiology, Neuroradiology, Head Injury and Interventional Radiology.

Applicants must be current members of the ACR that are in good standing. Individuals or multi-Principal Investigators (no more than two) may submit applications. Grants are available to full-time faculty and trainees with an MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent degree in educational institutions and private practices within the United States.

To be invited to apply, applicants must first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) by 5pm ET, Jan. 31, to research@acr.org. Each LOI must be completed using the template attached to the RFA. Incomplete LOIs or those submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Once the appropriate research committee provides project approval via review of the LOI, applicants will receive a letter inviting them to submit a full application by May 5.

Applicants who have questions are encouraged to reach out to research@acr.org during the application period.
