The goals of the AUR Research and Education Foundation, the charitable arm of the Association of University Radiologists are to encourage excellence in radiological laboratory and clinical investigation, teaching and clinical practice; to stimulate an interest in academic radiology as a medical career; to advance radiology as a medical science; and to represent academic radiology at a national level.
The foundation is currently accepting applications its Ethics and Professionalism in Radiology Project Grants, which are designed to improve patient care and safety, and to promote social responsibility in medical care and practice by providing funding opportunities for the study and teaching of ethics and professionalism in radiology.
Projects that address any aspect of ethics and professionalism in radiology will be considered. Examples of types of projects include, but are not limited to, research of ethical dilemmas faced by academic radiologists or radiology physicians-in-training and the methods by which the dilemmas are addressed and educational programs to teach ethics and professionalism to practicing radiologists, to radiology physicians-in-training, or to allied members of the academic radiology community.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in a single year. The awards may be used for salary support and/or other project costs. Through this grant program, the AUR Research & Education Foundation does not pay institutional indirect costs or overhead costs, or tuition.
Any member of AUR is eligible to apply as principal investigator. However, it is not necessary for all members of the research or development team to be AUR members. Eligibility of the principal investigator must be maintained throughout the grant period.
