The Radiological Research Trust was registered with the Charity Commission (registration number 292828) in October 1985.
The Trust was set up to raise funds and distribute grants for research and education in Medical Imaging, in response to the severe lack of funding for such a key medical field as radiology.

The Radiological Research Trust is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) non-commercial partner organisation. Details of the NIHR can be found at

What is Radiology?

Radiology is a specialty of medicine that just about everybody in their life uses at some point. If you have ever broken a bone, had a baby, found a lump that has been investigated for cancerous cells or your child as swallowed something horrible you will have used radiological related equipment and expertise.

Radiology has been used for medical purposes for over a century and remains a cornerstone of medicine. It can be used for not only diagnostic but also therapeutic purposes. Physicians use the information gained through radiological imaging to diagnose, treat and monitor injuries and diseases.

Radiology is critical to advancements in medicine and therefore ultimately the care which hospitals can provide you, their patients.

Today the aims of the Trust remain steadfast in providing critical funding to such an important specialty of medicine. Demand for funding remains high and the Trust remains committed to supporting some of the most exciting research in the field.

  This is an excellent funding opportunity to start a new project.          RRT is a great place to apply for your first funding and can be a springboard for future grants.
