The National Cancer Institute’s In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Centers program seeks to accelerate the progress in molecular imaging as the basis for the extraordinary, non-invasive and quantitative analytical tools useful in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer as well as in the laboratory environment to interrogate biological pathways relevant to cancer. The Cancer Imaging Program of the NCI solicits new or competing applications for P50 Research Center Grants for In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Centers (ICMICs). The program will fund the 5-year P50 ICMIC grants to support interdisciplinary scientific teams conducting cutting-edge cancer molecular imaging research with clinical relevance.

ICMIC funding is designed to (1) support unique core facilities; (2) enable the awardees to initiate pilot research in new promising directions; and (3) provide interdisciplinary career development opportunities for investigators new to the field of molecular cancer imaging. The P50 funding mechanism and the intended ICMIC structure promote integration of resources and expertise to facilitate synergistic and creative scientific interactions, while allowing each center to define research objectives that would maximize individual unique scientific strengths of each research team. Collectively, the formation of multidisciplinary ICMICs is expected to stimulate cancer imaging research and streamline the implementation of the imaging technologies in patient care.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, July 6, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarized plans for 1) research components, 2) specialized resource facilities and/or services, 3) pilot projects, and 3) career development opportunities.


Up to $2,000,000 per year for up to 5 years
