Surgical Sciences, Biomedical Imaging, and Bioengineering IRG [SBIB]

The Surgical Sciences, Biomedical Imaging, and Bioengineering [SBIB] IRG will review applications for research grants that address topics in a variety of areas at the interface between a physical science or engineering and biomedical or clinical research. 


Study Sections

 Major Areas Include

(1) Development of molecular probes and contrast agents; development of molecular imaging techniques; and basic, applied, and pre-clinical aspects of the design and development of medical imaging systems (including hardware, software and mathematical methods of image analysis) for studying organs or whole animals (including humans). 

(2) Application of computational sciences to knowledge and information in bio and clinical medicine, healthcare and their integration. 

(3) Development of: biomedical sensing and measurement instrumentation; diagnostic instrumentation creating knowledge to enhance organ system function and recovery; innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices; and informatics approaches to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. 

(4) Surgery and anesthesiology; host response to sepsis and injury; surgical and microsurgical therapies; surgical critical care and emergency medicine; treatment of trauma; multi-organ responses to surgery.
