We were very excited to host a visit to the NIH on November 9, 2017. Members of the Academy’s CIBR coalition attended. Representatives from a number of our patient advocacy groups as well as industry representatives from GE and Toshiba participated. As part of our NIH tour, Bradford Wood, MD, Clinical Center Senior Staff, delivered remarks on minimally invasive image-guided therapies. This was followed by a tour of the Clinical Center with a special visit to the pediatric section.
Following the Clinical Center tour, the group attended an exceptional series of presentations led by Jill Heemskerk, PhD, Acting Director, NIBIB, and her staff on the state of imaging research and the grant process.
