In this first-of-kind invited scientific session, current NIH-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 objective 1: To understand the different grant mechanisms currently funding AAPM members.
Learning objective 2: To learn about the scientific initiatives that the NIH is funding.
Learning objective 3: To learn about the grant development process including developing preliminary data and specific aims.

Funding Support, Disclosures, and Conflict of Interest: Research agreements with Philips Healthcare, ViewRay, Inc., and Modus Medical. Research partially supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number R01CA204189.
