The predoctoral program supports a research scholar in an established molecular imaging lab that will apply molecular imaging approaches (including tool development) to investigate biological pathways in disease models. The objective is to encourage the integration of imaging approaches in the research of molecular pathways of disease. This $40,000 grant provides $20,000 annually for two years and is made possible through a grant from the Education and Research Foundation for SNM.
-Applicant must have advanced to candidacy in PhD -Applicants from any country may apply -Applicant must be a full-time student in an educational institution when the award starts -Preference will be given to individuals who have demonstrated great potential for a research career in the field of molecular imaging -Only one application per scholar is accepted.
