The Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Research and Education Foundation (CIRREF) Dr. Ernest J. Ring Academic Development Grant Program is designed to provide support to junior faculty members early in their academic careers to allow time for the conduct of research. The goal of this program is to have the grant recipient subsequently obtain additional funding from other sources, e.g., the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants. Applicants should propose research that advances the science of cardiovascular and interventional radiology.

Applicants should be junior full-time faculty members with MD, PhD or equivalent degrees who have not yet been recognized as independent investigators or recipients of major grant support (i.e. current grants exceeding $50,000). Applicants must be within the first five years of their initial faculty appointment after having completed all formal training. Those in residencies or fellowships or those generally considered advanced students in training rather than full-time faculty are not eligible.

The applicant must have a mentor who will guide and supervise the applicants research. The mentor should have documented research interests and accomplishments in the applicant's research area and must hold a position at the assistant professor level or higher.

Because MU is limited to one submission for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, November 4, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a summary of the proposed research, 2) a brief explanation of hour the research will advance the science of cardiovascular and interventional radiology, and 3) a summary of the relevant research interests and accomplishments of the proposed mentor.


A grant of $50,000 per year for a maximum of two years includes $20,000 that may be used toward the applicant's salary and $30,000 for research expenses.

MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 4, 2005 (letter of intent)
Sponsor Deadline:
