In 2014 the Academy of Radiology Research Academic Council offered 12 travel awards for early career investigators from Member Departments to attend the annual Coalition for Imaging and Bioengineering Research (CIBR) Medical Technology Imaging Showcase in Washington DC. These awards created a unique opportunity for investigators to learn first-hand how to advocate for imaging research, discuss research with policy makers and visit the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Each travel awardee meets with NIH Directors and staff, their Congressional Representatives, and have the option to display a research poster they design from their home Institution during the Showcase. Additionally, there are incredible networking opportunities with Academic Chairs, patient advocacy leaders, and Congressional staff.
These original awardees requested to become a permanent Council within the Academy to further continue their advocacy efforts on behalf of imaging research. As a result, the Council of Early Career Investigators in Imaging CECI2 is now a permanent Council within the Academy membership. To become a member of CECI2 you must be a recipient of a travel award.
