The CMIIT Lab Professional Recognition Award for Contributions to Molecular Imaging is designed to recognize laboratory professionals that have made a significant contribution to molecular imaging and therapy while working in the laboratory of a principal investigator (PI). The award will be granted for contributions in any molecular imaging category, including but not limited to biomarker development, CT, MRI, optical, PET, SPECT, and ultrasound imaging.

The Lab Professional Award is specifically created for lab professionals at a staff level position with an emphasis on accomplishments achieved in the laboratory of the PI. Presented annually, its purpose is to promote the exemplary accomplishments by individuals in the lab who may not have the opportunity to receive recognition in other arenas. Nominations should focus on the individual’s contributions to a laboratory and how those contributions have advanced an area of molecular imaging and therapy.
