Newsletter No. 113 - March 2009

Editor's Note: The NOTICES section is first because that is where the exciting announcements are. Also, first and foremost, if you want to respond to many of the ARRA announcements, you must have a funded grant, even if it is in no-cost extension.
The NCI, as of now, is not ready to announce institute plans. Please consult, and keep consulting, http://grants.nih.gov/recovery/ic_supp.html to see what the various ICs are planning.

CIP Announcements
CIP DCIDE PROGRAM
The Cancer Imaging Program of the NCIrequests submissions for its Development of Clinical Imaging Drugs and Enhancers (DCIDE) initiative. The goal is the rapid movement of promising, novel cancer imaging enhancers or molecular probes from the laboratory to proof-of-principle clinical trials. See the web site for details.

GUEST AUTHOR OPPORTUNITIES IN THE NIH MICAD DATABASE
The Molecular Imaging and Contrast Agent Database (MICAD) program has been developed as a key component of the NIH Molecular Imaging Roadmap to provide freely accessible online scientific information on in vivo molecular imaging and contrast agents. To accelerate expansion of the database to include all published agents, the MICAD program has implemented a procedure for members of the imaging community to write and submit entries (chapters) as guest authors to the database. All members of the imaging community are encouraged to consider this guest author opportunities. For further information, please contact the MICAD staff at micad@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. Individual guest authors will be provide with detailed instructions, style guidelines, and a chapter template. The name of the contributing author(s) will be acknowledged and included in the MICAD online publication.
