SNM awards $300,000 to support molecular imaging research
Date:7/14/2008

RESTON, Va.SNMan international scientific and professional organization of more than 16,000 members dedicated to promoting the practical applications, technology and science of molecular imaging and nuclear medicinehas awarded $300,000 in research grants to support molecular imaging research. The grants, supported by SNM's Education and Research Foundation, represent the society's commitment to advancing molecular imaging and therapy by supporting the next generation of researchers.

"SNM's awards and fellowships are integral to supporting promising young researchers working in the field of molecular imaging," said Henry VanBrocklin, Ph.D., president of SNM's Molecular Imaging Center of Excellence and professor of radiology and biomedical imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. "As a society, we have a tradition of creating opportunities for researchers to excel in the field. These new awards will create further opportunities for young scientists to pursue cutting-edge research in the emerging field of molecular imaging."

"As government agencies continue to struggle with flat research budgets, foundation support is more critical than ever," said SNM President Robert W. Atcher, Ph.D., M.B.A., emerging medical technology team leader at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and UNM/LANL Professor of Pharmacy at the University of New Mexico. "We must invest in and support the work of promising young researchers in order to realize new advances to patient care. These grants will also position these researchers to effectively compete for funding from Federal agencies by providing seed funding to generate preliminary data on cutting-edge molecular imaging work."

This is the first time that SNM has offered awards specifically to support research in the field of molecular imaging. Recipients of the new Molecular Imaging Awards were announced at SNM's 55th Annual Meeting in New Orleans, La.
