TH-EF-TRACK 2-0 (Thursday, 7/29/2021) 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM [Eastern Time (GMT-4)]

In this invited scientific session, current extramurally funded Principal Investigators (PIs) from different areas of Medical Physics will shed light on the high impact scientific research being conducted by AAPM members. During each session, PIs will briefly describe their unique funding mechanisms and pathway to funding to highlight the depth and breadth of funding opportunities available to Medical Physics researchers. AAPM members who are single PIs and those participating as the primary PI in a multiple PI grant will be highlighted. For each grant, the PI will describe the clinical motivation and scientific underpinnings of the work. Specific aims and key initial scientific results will be highlighted along with a look toward future research directions. Finally, each PI will conclude with brief parting comments regarding grant funding to share their perspective and words of wisdom with the AAPM audience.

Learning Objectives:
1. To understand the different grant mechanisms currently funding AAPM members.
2. To learn about the scientific initiatives that have extramural funding.
3. To learn about the grant development process including developing preliminary data and specific aims.
