Dr Prafulla Kumar Ganguli Professorship

2020 applications are now closed.


This award is funded by a generous legacy from the estate of the late Dr Ganguli to visit India for educational purposes.


The purpose of the visit is educational: to provide local teaching and training and also to participate in postgraduate meetings. The request encourages delivering lectures at national meetings and this will be taken into account by the Royal College of Radiologists when considering applicants. Visits arranged under the Professorship scheme are expected to be of up to two weeks (maximum) duration. At the end of the Professorship, the successful candidate will be required to render a report on the visit and outcomes to the College. 


Up to £6,000


The Professorship is open to clinical radiologists or clinical oncologists who are Fellows of the RCR in good standing, resident in the United Kingdom and in active clinical practice at the time of the application and the award/visit.
