Imaging Pilot Award ProgramThe Imaging pilot award program provides funding for junior investigators in the following areas:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Optical Imaging
- PET Tomography
- Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography/Computed Tomography (SPECT/CT), and
Structural, functional, or spectroscopic imaging studies in animals or human subjects with relevance to medical illness will be considered.
Funds are limited, and the main goal is to obtain pilot data for NIH, NSF or foundation grant applications. To ensure the methods proposed are optimal for the research question being posed, applications will be reviewed by a multi-disciplinary selection committee with expertise in radiology and imaging. Budgets for approved projects will range from $5,000 to $10,000, as determined by the Imaging Review Committee.
