The Diagnostic 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 (or removed from it), please contact Johnnie Smith by return e-mail (js95x@nih.gov).

The staff of the Diagnostic Imaging Program places a high priority on communicating with and facilitating the work of researchers in the imaging community. We look forward to working with you.
