Academy Celebrates Legislative Success!  The Academys Medical Imaging

Academy Celebrates Legislative Success! The Academys Medical Imaging Research Initiative (MIRI) led to the creation of the Interagency Working Group on Medical Imaging (IWGMI). In support of the IWGMI, the Academy worked with our Congressional partners on Committee report language that calls for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to provide an update on the Working Group.

Academy Urges Senate to Pass 21st Century Cures to Drive NIH Funding The House version of the 21st Century Cures legislation provides $8.75 billion in funding for the NIH over a five-year period. In spite of bipartisan agreement in support of medical innovation and research, this legislation has yet to pass the Senate. The Academy will continue to advocate in support of 21st Century Cures.

Academy Advocates for Imaging in the National Cancer Moonshot Academy of Radiology Research Policy Statement on the Cancer Moonshot Where We Stand: Academy Moonshot Policy The Policy Statement succinctly addresses the following major components of the contributions imaging researchers can make to this endeavor: 1.The role of imaging in cancer research and treatment. 2.Computational science and big data. 3.Improving research and outcomes by supporting educational pathways for young researchers. 4. The role of the Interagency Working Group on Medical Imaging (IWGMI) to advance cancer research. 5. Imaging research as a support for FDA efforts to create novel products. The Academy Moonshot Policy Statement

The Academy Gains Traction: Next Step Meeting with OSTP The Academy and CIBR leadership are meeting with the leaders of the Cancer Moonshot initiative to help inform and facilitate the Administrations efforts, including the role of imaging in cancer early detection, precision diagnosis, and minimally-invasive treatment. 2016 Distinguished Investigators Represent 21 Academic Departments The Academy will recognize the Distinguished Investigator awardees during a ceremony at the 2016 RSNA meeting.

There will be 38 awardees representing 21 different departments. 2015 Awardee Feranando E. Boada, PhD, of New York University with former Academy President Jonathan S. Lewin, MD Academy Academic Council Sponsors Early Career Investigators to Attend Annual Showcase in DC The Academy Council of Early Career Investigators in Imaging, CIBR and Academy leadership, with Roderic I. Pettigrew PhD, MD, Director of the NIBIB. Travel awardees are also inducted into the Council of Early Career Investigators in Imaging. Partnership with ARVO:

Communicating Patent Impact The Academys Nature article: Patents as Proxies: NIH Hubs of Innovation, shows that National Eye Institute patents were most likely to go on and be commercialized. ARVO is using this article for its current project on optical coherence tomography (OCT). This is a great example of the Academys ripple effect on the community! Academy Hosts Successful Venture Imaging Pilot During the AUR Annual Meeting The Academy hosted a pilot program to educate early career investigators

about how best to present translational research and technology development ideas to industry and other non-governmental funding sources. This initiative will host two meetings annually, one in the spring for educational purposes and the second in the fall as a shark tank event that will lead to potential funding.
