Computercraft seeks an experienced imaging scientist to provide curatorial responsibilities for implementing and maintaining the NIH imaging agent database. The individual will work with NIH staff scientists and extramural advisors onsite at the NIH campus. Join our team of highly skilled and dedicated professionals as we participate in the development of a new centralized database of in vivo imaging agents. This innovative database will include agents developed for position-emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and optical imaging. The database will be located within the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This diversified and challenging position requires a Ph.D. (strongly preferred) or M.S. degree in imaging sciences or highly related field. The successful candidate will have a demonstrable knowledge of the chemistry and developmental process of in vivo imaging agents, experience with current analytical tools in both chemistry and biology, and a working knowledge of the issues associated with the information technology and cheminformatics required to successfully implement this database.

REVISED PHS 2590 (NON-COMPETING GRANT PROGRESS REPORT) NOW AVAILABLE
Progress Reports using the newly revised U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service Non-Competing Grant Progress Report (PHS 2590, rev. 9/04) instructions and forms will be accepted immediately. All progress reports received on or after May 1, 2005 must use the new version.
CSR REVIEW PANELS REORGANIZED
The NIH Center for Scientific Review has reorganized the review panels to which the investigator-initiated imaging applications are sent. BMIT is the former DMG; MEDI is the former RNM
Look at the web site to see the Surgical Sciences, Biomedical Imaging, and Bioengineering IRB (SBIB) information with links to the Study Sections. Call program about grants first reviewed by DMG and RNM now being resubmitted as amended applications.
CIP DCIDE PROGRAM
The Cancer Imaging Program of the NCI requests submissions for its Development of Clinical Imaging Drugs and Enhancers (DCIDE) initiative. The goal is the rapid movement of promising, novel cancer imaging enhancers or molecular probes from the laboratory to proof of principle clinical trials. See the web site for details.
The NIH Commons web site allows all NIH grantee organizations to interact with grants data, to check the status of grant applications, including viewing scores and summary statements when they are ready, and to submit progress reports on line, among a number of functions. Applicants and grants administrators should become familiar with the Commons.

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 (email@example.com).
