The Brain Imaging Council provides a forum whereby information relating to brain imaging may be discussed and disseminated and also provides a mechanism for the promotion and encouragement of basic brain imaging research and development. The Council is dedicated to the scientific interchange of ideas among Society members who have interest in brain imaging using radiopharmaceuticals. The overall mission of the Brain Imaging Council is to:
(a) provide a forum for members with similar interests
(b) provide to membership expertise in brain imaging using radiopharmaceuticals
(c) foster research and education in brain imaging using radiopharmaceuticals
(d) provide outreach to other professionals and organizations
(e) nurture new membership into the Society
(f) serve as a resource to SNMMI Leadership

The Kuhl-Lassen Award
The highest award of SNMMI's Brain Imaging Council was created to honor two founding pioneers in functional brain imaging: SNMMI member David E. Kuhl, M.D., and Nils Lassen. The Kuhl-Lassen Award is given annually to recognize a scientist who has made outstanding contributions and whose research in and service to the discipline of functional brain imaging is of the highest caliber.

BIC Young Investigator Awards Symposium
SNMMI symposium and competition, in association with the Brain Imaging Council, for the best scientific abstracts on neurosciences nuclear medicine. Learn more about the BIC Young Investigator Awards.
BIC Travel Award
This award is designed to recognize and support the attendance of students, postdoctoral scholars, trainees and early career junior faculty in the field of brain molecular imaging, who are members of the SNMMI and will present abstracts in person at the SNMMI Annual Meeting. Learn more about the BIC Travel Award.
The Society recognizes the need for sub-specialty interests/expertise within the field of nuclear medicine and moleuclar imaging. Councils provide the expertise, professional networking and educational programs for nuclear medicine professionals in respective areas and serve as a resource for development and implementatin of Society policies.
Council membership is voluntary. Councils adhere to Society Bylaws and policies, while operating under its own Operating Procedures, as approved by the House of Delegates, and its own business plan and budget, as approved by the SNMMI Board of Directors.
This section provides the following council specific information.

How to Become a Member
Membership in the Brain Imaging Council is limited to members of the SNMMI. Membership can be attained by indicating the desire to join during the annual renewal of the SNMMI membership or by filing an application with the Secretary of the council.
Payment of Dues
Membership in the BIC requires payment of dues in the amount of $15/year. Dues are paid to SNMMI and will be due on October 1st of each year.
Benefits of Membership:
Membership makes you a part of a professional group within the SNMMI that:
Provides continuing education for professionals in the various areas relating to Brain Imaging through sponsored symposia and continuing education courses. Each year the BICC puts on a Categorical Seminar or symposia, and Continuing Education Courses on topics of interest to professionals in the Brain Imaging.
Provides a forum and a mechanism for discussion and dissemination of information relating to the Brain Imaging. The BIC members receive periodic Newsletters and electronic mailings containing information on professional activities, government issues, and a host of other topics related to the Brain Imaging. Members will soon have access to BIC Web pages, which will contain timely and archived information relating to a variety of topics in the Brain Imaging.
Provides expertise in the Brain Imaging to SNMMI leadership and to groups outside of SNMMI seeking such expertise. The BIC has representation in a number of governance groups within SNMMI, including the Committee on Councils and the House of Delegates.
