ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE IMAGING RESEARCH COMMUNITY:

NIH RFA/RFP

  1. DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF IMAGING IN THERAPEUTIC STUDIES
    RFA: CA-98-024
    Letter of Intent Receipt Date: October 14, 1998
    Application Receipt Date: November 18, 1998
    This RFA originated within the Diagnostic Imaging Program.

  2. MOUSE MODELS OF HUMAN CANCERS CONSORTIUM RFA: CA-98-013
    National Cancer Institute
    Letter of Intent Receipt Date: December 17, 1998
    Application Receipt Date: January 21, 1999
    The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is inviting cooperative agreement applications from groups to become components of the NCI Mouse Models of Human Cancers Consortium. The purpose is to accelerate the pace at which mice with heritable malignancies that are accurate, reproducible models of human cancers are made available to the research community for further investigation or application. The investigators will originate the approaches. They will contribute to the Consortium their collective knowledge of mouse genetics, . . ., small animal imaging technologies, and the clinical properties of human cancer that inform the design of therapy, prevention, and early detection strategies.

  3. PEDIATRIC STUDY CENTERS (PSC) FOR A MRI STUDY OF NORMAL BRAIN DEVELOPMENT SOL NIH-NINDS-98-13
    Request for Proposals (RFP) Issued on or about September 3, 1998. Check the web site. Proposals will be due approximately seventy-five days after issuance of the RFP.
    The NINDS, NIMH, and NICHD are putting forth an initiative to establish a pediatric brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data base.

NIH PA/PAR

  1. SHARED RESOURCES FOR SCIENTISTS OUTSIDE NCI CANCER CENTERS PA NUMBER: PAR-98-092
    National Cancer Institute Letter of Intent Receipt Date: October 9, 1998
    Application Receipt Date: November 13, 1998
    The objective of this program announcement (PA) is to provide groups of six or more NCI funded investigators in institutions that do not have NCI funded Cancer Centers with additional shared resource support. Increasing the availability of core resources is expected to improve the ability to conduct research and thereby facilitate scientific progress.

  2. CEREBRAL RADIOBIOLOGY AND NEUROIMAGING OF BRAIN TUMORS PA NUMBER: PA-98-094
    National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Cancer Institute
    The NINDS and the NCI invite applications for research into the mechanisms of radiation-induced cell injury and recovery, and the sensitizing and protective mechanisms in the central nervous system under radiation treatment conditions for brain tumors. The intent of this program is to encourage R01 and P01 applications to study tumor and normal brain cell injury and repair mechanisms induced by brain tumor radiotherapy.

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.
