Scientific Review Officer

Basic, applied and pre-clinical aspects of the design and development of medical imaging systems, their components, software, and mathematical models, for studies at the organ, small or large animal, and human scale are also included. Proposals involving the application and validation of in vivo animals in animals or humans, including early phase clinical studies of medical imaging systems, molecular probes and contrast agents, software, molecular imaging techniques and related technologies are also reviewed here. The panel reviews science covered by the Musculoskeletal, Oral and Skin Sciences [MOSS] and Surgical Sciences, Biomedical Imaging, and Bioengineering[SBIB] integrated review groups.


The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.
