American Roentgen Ray Society Grants 2024
ARRS Scholarships from Roentgen Fund to Ian Mark, Evan Calabrese
Leesburg, VA, January
31, 2024—The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS)
is pleased to announce two 2024 ARRS Scholarships have been granted to Ian Mark
of Mayo Clinic Minnesota and Evan
Calabrese of Duke University Medical Center.
Provided by ARRS’ own The Roentgen Fund®, the ARRS Scholarship
supports early-career faculty members pursuing radiological research that promises
to change how medical imaging is practiced. A two-year grant totaling $180,000,
the ARRS Scholarship aims to advance emerging scholars, as well as prepare them
for positions of leadership.
Mark, Evan Calabrese will be formally recognized as recipients of the ARRS Scholarship
during the opening ceremony of the 124th ARRS Annual Meeting in Boston,
MA, on Sunday, May 5, 2024.
Ian Mark, MD, is an assistant professor of
Radiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He completed his diagnostic
radiology residency at Mayo Clinic, where he was chief resident. He
subsequently completed a neuroradiology fellowship at UCSF, where he was chief
fellow. Since returning to Mayo Clinic as faculty, Dr. Mark joined the spine
intervention practice, where he performs various types of myelography for the
diagnosis of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. He is passionate about
developing innovative diagnostic tools and focuses on the underlying
pathophysiology of CSF leaks. Dr. Mark has previously participated in the ARRS
sponsored Introduction to Academic Radiology Program and Clinician Educator
Development Program. His research has received external support by means of the
American Society of Neuroradiology Scholar Award, the American Society of Spine
Radiology Research Grant, and the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology
William N. Hanafee Grant.
Evan Calabrese, MD, PhD, works in the departments of
radiology and biomedical engineering at the Duke Center for Artificial
Intelligence in Radiology (DAIR) at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC.
As a physician scientist focused on neuroimaging, his ongoing career goal is to
combine clinical excellence in neuroradiology with cutting-edge research. Dr.
Calabrese’s primary research interest lies in the use of innovative automated
image processing techniques, including artificial intelligence, to help extract
clinically useful information from multimodal neuroimaging data with a focus on
applications in neuro-oncology. As clinical imaging protocols continue to grow
with the addition of high-field, high-resolution, and advanced imaging
techniques, he believes that there will be an increasing need for computational
neuroimaging support tools to ensure that patients and clinicians receive the
maximum benefit from neuroimaging studies. His ongoing research focuses on
development, validation, and implementation of these neuroimaging support tools
for improving care of patients with tumors of the central nervous system.
Medical schools, affiliated hospitals, and clinical research
institutions with training interests in diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine,
allied sciences, or other professions fundamental to imaging techniques are
invited to submit one nomination for the 2025 ARRS Scholarships.
North America’s first radiological society, the American
Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) remains dedicated to the advancement of
medicine through the profession of medical imaging and its allied sciences. An
international forum for progress in radiology since the discovery of the x-ray,
ARRS maintains its mission of improving health through a community committed to
advancing knowledge and skills with the world’s longest continuously published
radiology journal—American Journal of Roentgenology—the ARRS Annual Meeting, InPractice
magazine, topical symposia, myriad multimedia educational materials, as well as
