The ASRT Foundation has awarded a $25,000 research grant to Kevin D. Evans, Ph.D., of The Ohio State University. Dr. Evans and his team will use the funds to investigate if pediatric patients diagnosed with the SARS CoV2 virus experience long-term inflammation of multi-organ systems.

Dr. Evans is a five-time recipient of the ASRT Foundation’s research grants. He has used past grant funds to complete several research projects that have primarily focused on medical imaging’s role in diagnosing disease and illness. He is a tenured professor at The Ohio State University’s College of Medicine and the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences where he works as a researcher/educator. In addition, he is the chair of the Radiologic Sciences/Respiratory Therapy Division and is the director of the Laboratory for Investigatory Imaging.

The ASRT Foundation’s Research Grant provides up to $25,000 to support experienced researchers with projects related to improving the quality and safety of patient care.

“I’m incredibly grateful to the ASRT Foundation as its generous support has provided me with the ability to continue my research studies on a variety of topics, which I’m confident are helping improve overall patent care,” said Dr. Evans. “It’s organizations like the ASRT Foundation that allow researchers to continue their efforts improve health care and build the profession’s body of knowledge.”

The ASRT Foundation, philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, funds and shares the research and analysis of many issues that affect medical imaging technologists and radiation therapists, helping to cultivate the next generation of researchers. The Foundation offers a continuum of research grant opportunities to support researchers of all experience levels.
