  2. INTERAGENCY COUNCIL ON BIOMEDICAL IMAGING IN ONCOLOGY
    The due date for requests is Thursday, June 8th, 2000.
    The Interagency Council is a newly created multi-agency group designed to serve as a sounding board for investigators and manufacturers attempting to take emerging medical imaging technology to market. It consists of a core staff from the FDA, HCFA, and NCI with experience and knowledge concerning the decision-making processes for their agency for medical imaging products. Additional agency staff may be added to the core group on specific matters when needed. The purpose of the Council is to provide multi-agency advice that may help guide imaging technology developers in the fight against cancer. The Council will provide advice on projects or project proposals brought voluntarily by investigators and technology/device developers in industry and academia. It offers a new, multi-agency perspective to the communication with government agencies that is already available to investigators and companies.

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