The International Society for Magnetic
Resonance in Medicine announces the competition for the Young
Investigators' Awards for the ISMRM 19th Annual Meeting &
Exhibition, in Montreal, Canada, 7-13 May 2011. Two awards will be
given, the W.S. Moore Award in Clinical Science and the I.I. Rabi
Award in Basic Science.
The W.S. Moore Award is given for original clinical research in magnetic resonance. This includes studies of applications of established MR methodologies, using either human or animal subjects. Examples include manuscripts reporting new applications of MR contrast agents, optimization of scanning protocols, new clinical applications of MRI, or results of clinical trials.
The I.I. Rabi Award is given for original basic research in magnetic resonance, such as reports of new MR methodologies and understanding of MR signals.
The competition is open to clinical and basic scientists at the undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate, resident, and fellow levels working in MR research in academia, industry, or research institutions. Applicants must have had no more than the equivalent of five years’ full-time postdoctoral or post-residency research, as documented by a curriculum vitae and letter of confirmation from their supervisor, mentor, or department head.
To be considered for either award, the applicant must do the following:
« Submit a single manuscript describing original work in the field of MR in medicine directly to one of the Society’s journals. W.S. Moore applicants should submit to the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and I.I. Rabi applicants to Magnetic Resonance in Medicine via their Web sites. The manuscript may not have been submitted elsewhere prior to the submission deadline, with the exception of manuscripts submitted to one of the Society’s journals (JMRI or MRM). Manuscripts previously submitted to either Society journal, but not yet published, are eligible for consideration.
All manuscripts submitted to either of the Society’s journals will be reviewed for publication, whether or not chosen as a YIA finalist.
« In addition, the applicant must submit an abstract on the topic of this research for the annual meeting via the ISMRM abstract submission Web site. The applicant must be the sole or primary author of this work.
« The Young Investigator Awards Committee will select up to three finalists for each award. All abstracts will automatically be considered for the ISMRM 19th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in May 2011. The finalists will make both oral and poster presentations at the Annual Meeting. The winners will be selected on the basis of the scientific quality and originality of their abstracts, manuscripts, and presentations and will be named before the close of the Meeting.

« Manuscripts must be uploaded on the appropriate Society Journal's Web site no later than Wednesday, 6 October 2010.
