SIO Research Grants

Society of Interventional Oncology: Research Grant Opportunities 

This Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO) Grant is designed to fund research initiatives that:

  • Evaluate immune stimulation of interventional oncologic therapies,
  • Combine approaches to improve clinical outcome, and
  • Improve the understanding of underlying mechanisms as to how different therapies influence both adaptive and innate immunity, as well as underlying inflammation and tumorigenesis.

New funding opportunity: 

The Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO), working in collaboration with Guerbet, LLC, are accepting research proposals on the topic of transarterial lipiodol chemoembolization.

This collaboration establishes an independent research fund, generously sponsored by Guerbet, LLC that will enable SIO to offer grant funding for a wide array of research evaluating and advancing this premier interventional oncologic therapy.

Grant funding of up to $50,000 for one-year exploratory pilot projects and up to $100,000 for larger one to two-year projects with preliminary data.

All applications must be submitted electronically through our online application portal by Friday, June 1, 2018. Click here to learn more about the opportunity.
