SNM's grants and awards program is funded by both the Education and Research Foundation for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and the SNM Technologist Section (SNMTS) Professional Development and Education Fund. This program provides research grants and fellowships, educational scholarships and recognition awards to researchers, young investigators and students in nuclear medicine, molecular imaging and nuclear medicine technology. The Education and Research Foundation for SNM has been supporting the molecular imaging/nuclear medicine community since its founding in 1969. The foundation's mission is to advance excellence in health care through education and research in molecular imaging/nuclear medicine by provision of grants and awards.
"Providing molecular imaging/nuclear medicine professionals with increased support for cutting-edge research is one of the major priorities of SNM and the foundation," said ERF President Michael D. Devous Sr., Ph.D. "We are thankful that Tyco Healthcare/Mallinckrodt came forward to help us on this venture," he added.
