The symposium is organized every year by the Working Group on Funding and Grantsmanship (WGFG: http://www.aapm.org/org/structure/?committee_code=WGFG); one of the WG of the AAPM Research Committee.

For Year 2014, the main theme of this symposium is to introduce to the membership the NCI Cancer Imaging Program that fosters advances in in vivo medical imaging sciences through support of basic and applied research in cancer imaging as well as promotion of imaging in clinical trials in order to gain greater understanding of the pathways of cancer biology for the benefit of cancer patients and people at cancer risk.

The second segment will highlight the NCI SBIR’s and STTR’s funding programs which have a great potential in moving innovative research into small businesses as a vehicle to help move these technologies forward and move them toward commercialization. This segment will be followed by inviting large corporations to the table to present their interest in research and partnerships with academic institution (Industrial Grants).
