CIP Announcements
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.

The Cancer Imaging Program at NCI has created this e-mail distribution list to notify interested people about funding opportunities and other issues related to imaging research. Its primary purpose is to call your attention to important, relevant information on NIH Web pages, or in the NIH Guide. Occasionally it may be used to clarify areas of confusion, or disseminate answers to frequently asked questions.
If you wish to remain on the list, no action is necessary. If you wish to be added to the list, please contact Dr Barbara Croft by return e-mail   (bc129b@nih.gov).
