Isherwood Prize

Professor Ian Isherwood Pump Priming Grant 2019

The British Society of Neuroradiologists is pleased to announce the call for the 2019 Professor Ian Isherwood Pump Priming Grant.

Background: The award is dedicated in honour of Professor Ian Isherwood (1931-2018) and his pioneering work in neuroradiology.

Aims: The aim of the grant is to provide funding for a junior trainee or early years consultant to undertake an early phase, proof-of-concept study; typically, with a view to a subsequent substantive grant application. The research should relate specifically to a branch of neuroradiology.

Eligibility: Trainee applicants are encouraged, but must be supervised by a BSNR member in good standing. In addition, members of the BSNR in good standing holding appointments of any grade (but usually within 5 years of their first consultant level appointment) are encouraged to apply. Funding will be to support new work. Retrospective funding of completed work will not be considered.

Funding: A maximum of £10,000 will be awarded to any individual project.
