2014 ACNM Resident Abstract Awards

The Program Committee of the American College of Nuclear Medicine and the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging invited the submission of original abstracts for the 2014 Mid-Winter Meeting, held February 6-9, 2014 in St. Louis, MO. Over 50 abstracts from young professionals (physicians or scientists in training, or in practice within 10 years of graduation) were submitted on aspects of clinical and basic science in nuclear medicine, correlative imaging in radiology, nuclear cardiology and radiation oncology. Accepted abstracts were presented in both oral and poster format.

A panel of physicians served as judges for the young investigator abstract oral and posters presentations. ACNM awarded three Best Assay Awards, each for $500 and two Travel Grants each for $750. Please join the ACNM in congratulating these young professionals.
