Benedict Cassen Awards


Thursday, January 15, 2015


The Benedict Cassen Prize is awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement and work leading to a major advance in nuclear medicine science. The prize award is $25,000 and is only offered every other year (even years).  Nominations for 2014 are now closed. The next call for Nominations will be in 2016.

This grant provides funds for a junior scientist faculty member to recruit a post-doctoral to support research in the field of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. The grant is intended to provide these early-career scientists with mentoring experience, and the opportunity to develop preliminary data for federal or other competitive research support. The grant will provide support for the postdoctoral fellow to carry out the research under the supervision of the junior faculty member, with the assistance of a senior faculty member or principal investigator. Selection of a postdoctoral fellow from relevant disciplines outside Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging is encouraged but not required. Overall administrative and research guidance for the postdoctoral fellow is to be provided by a senior mentor in the same institution
