The Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Research and Education Foundation (CIRREF) Dr. Ernest J. Ring Academic Development Grant Program supports junior interventional radiology faculty members to allow time for the conduct of research. Applicants should propose research that advances the science of cardiovascular and interventional radiology.

Applicants must be within the first five years of their initial faculty appointment after having completed all formal training. Only applicants holding a position up to and including the assistant professor level at the time of application are eligible. The applicant must have a mentor who will guide and supervise the applicant’s 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. Those in residencies or fellowships or those generally considered advanced students in training rather than full-time faculty are not eligible for this program.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, November 3, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should briefly summarize 1) the research plan, including the level of innovation and relevance to interventional radiology; 2) general qualifications of the applicant and the commitment of the applicant to a career in academic interventional radiology; and 3) qualifications and research expertise of the mentor.


$50,000 per year for a maximum of two years
