Imanova opens call for IMPETUS PET pilot awards

Imanova has today opened a call for applicants for their next round of IMPETUS awards, which offer researchers an opportunity to conduct a pilot PET project around an important scientific question at Imanova’s world-leading research facilities.

The opportunity offers researchers free PET (and relevant MRI) scans as well as expert advice on study design and set up. The award scheme’s purpose is to enable the successful applicants to acquire pilot data sufficient for use in a full grant application for an independent research program that will be undertaken at Imanova.

Previous awards have been granted to researchers studying a wide range of topics, such as the influence of obesity on neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's disease, the change in PDE10 signalling in Huntington’s disease in pre-manifest gene carriers (a project which has already achieved award-winning success) and brain GABA-A receptors in gene deletion and duplication syndromes linked to autism spectrum.

If you are interested in applying, please complete and return the application form (PDF) (Word version) by midnight on Friday 10 October. For further information, please refer to the FAQ document.

Please note that this call has now closed.  However, if you are interested in discussing research scanning opportunities with us, then please contact us by e-mail or phone as below.
