The Neiman Institute grants program will advance our mission by funding novel research that provides evidence to inform health policy and radiology practice that promotes the effective and efficient use of health care resources with the goal of improving patient care.
We seek proposals that meaningfully expand the evidence base that paves the way for advances in radiological practice that improve patient outcomes, reduce health disparities, inform the appropriate use of that care, and demonstrate value to support adequate reimbursement needed to ensure patients have access to a high level of care from trained radiologists.
Neiman Institute grants will advance the broader ACR strategy to engage in imaging research that will advance the practice of radiology. Accordingly, we will seek opportunities to invest back into the ACR membership to foster innovative and high-potential research; applications from researchers outside of radiology will also be accepted.
To facilitate novel, empirical research that contributes directly to the NHPI mission.
Funded research proposals must:
Be a Current Policy Priority in Radiology
Include a Research Plan with actionable information
Have the Potential to Directly Inform Health Policy and Practice
Priority is placed on proposals from ACR members, incorporating expertise, research methods, populations, or data sources that extend the Neiman Institute’s current capabilities.
Research Award Categories (Other Areas will be Considered)
