    The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invite investigator-initiated research grant applications that address the potential role of the central nervous system (CNS) as a reservoir for HIV. An example of relevant research is:

    Refinement and assessment of structural imaging of the brain using computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), MR spectroscopy and functional MR, single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography (PET) in diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease.

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.
