The CMIIT Laboratory Professional award is designed to recognize innovative/novel and high-impact tools, techniques, and practices in molecular imaging laboratory professionals. Its purpose is to promote the innovative efforts and exemplary accomplishments by individuals in the lab who may not have the opportunity to receive recognition in other arenas.
