NINDS invites grant applications to develop innovative molecular imaging probes. This announcement is made together with 6 other NIH components.
Molecular imaging is an emerging research area aimed at imaging specific molecular signatures—particularly those that are key targets in disease processes. Unlike anatomical imaging, molecular imaging displays the biochemical or physiological abnormalities underlying disease, rather than the structural consequences of these abnormalities. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage the development of novel molecular imaging approaches that can detect and image specific molecular activities in vivo, and have the potential for clinical applications.
