ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE IMAGING RESEARCH COMMUNITY:

Two new initiatives from the Diagnostic Imaging Program have received preliminary approval by the NCI. The preliminary announcements can be found at the Web site given below. The two initiatives are partially described here.

  1. Title: Development and Application of Imaging in Therapeutic Studies
    Contact:
    Anne E. Menkens, Ph.D.
    Diagnostic Imaging Program
    Telephone: 301-496-9531
    E-mail: menkensa@dtpepn.nci.nih.gov
    Objective of Project: This initiative solicits applications that apply imaging technologies in the assessment of investigational cancer therapeutic agents. The proposed research projects will focus on the development and application of non-invasive tools for the functional or quantitative assessment of biochemical, genetic, or pharmacologic activity of specific therapeutic agents, or the defined biochemical pathway(s) in which they act.
  2. Title: Small Animal Imaging Resource Programs
    Contact:
    Barbara Y. Croft, Ph.D.
    Diagnostic Imaging Program
    Telephone: (301) 496-9531
    E-mail: bc129b@nih.gov
    Objective of Project: The objectives of the project are to provide collaboration in small animal imaging to oncology investigators and to provide for research and development of small animal imaging technologies. Improved small animal imaging facilities will enhance the use of mouse models and the integration of imaging methods into the study of the molecular bases for cancer.

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.
