  • This award is designed to recognize innovative/novel and high-impact tools, techniques, and practices in molecular imaging developed by non-PhD laboratory professionals. T
  • his award is distinct from the CMIIT Young Investigator Award (YIA) presented during the SNMMI annual meeting and is specifically created for non-PhD lab professionals.
  • Publication of the work is not a requirement and larger bodies of work may be better suited for submission for the YIA, especially if the emphasis is upon research results as opposed to the development of new tools and techniques.
