The SVU Foundation is committed to improving the quality of research in the field of vascular ultrasound, something our field has been sorely lacking.
This is mainly done through the Foundation’s Quality Improvement and Research Committee (QIRC), which explores and pursues research projects of value to the field of vascular ultrasound. QIRC is unique among SVU committees in that it resides within the SVU Foundation. It is responsible for soliciting and evaluating research proposals, overseeing the projects and disseminating the findings.

Access to a body of published research is important to the development of research and to inform quality patient care. Measures of such activities are determined by bibliometric analysis of publication databases.Keep Reading
The Quality Improvement & Research Committee (QIRC) undertook a methodical examination of three years of articles in the Journal for Vascular Ultrasound. Their analysis identifies where recent research has occurred and where it is published. (Jan. 2020)
There are several ways you can submit your research to SVU, or secure funding for your research from another organization.
Are you planning a research project and need funding?
While SVU does not issue research grants, other organizations such as the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) do offer grants. The call for proposals for these grants is typically announced in the first quarter of each year.
The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Research Committee has small community grants available annually, the call for proposals is also announced in the first quarter of each year.
