The SNMMI Bradley-Alavi Student Fellowships are designed to stimulate students’ interest in molecular imaging/nuclear medicine by supporting their full-time participation in clinical and basic research activities for three months (or less). The Bradley-Alavi Fellowships are named by the donors - Drs. Jane and Abass Alavi - in honor of Dr. Stanley E. Bradley, a professor of Medicine and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons until 1978 and a prominent researcher in the fields of renal physiology and liver disease. These fellowships are made possible through a grant from the Education and Research Foundation for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. AWARD • The awardee (or the awardees's institution) will receive a check for $2,000 at the beginning of the research period. Fellowship program participants will submit a 2-3 page report within 30 days of project/research completion; it should include graphics, suitable for publication in an Annual Report. • Upon receipt of this final report, the final payment of $1,000 will be released.
Eligibility: - The applicant must be a member of the SNMMI. For membership, please visit: www.snmmi.org/membership - A candidate from any country may apply, but the work must be done in the United States. - The applicant must be enrolled in a medical, pharmacy or graduate school, or be an undergraduate student demonstrating outstanding competence in nuclear medicine and/or molecular imaging research. This application must be completed in its entirety and submitted along with: • Current curriculum vitae • A detailed research proposal not to exceed 2 pages, excluding references. • A completed evaluation from the nuclear medicine faculty advisor overseeing the research (preceptor), whose information will be requested. • At least one (preferably two) support letters from others involved in the applicant’s educational/research experience. The applicant’s preceptor may submit a letter of support, however, it must not be the sole letter received. The fellowship should be completed in the United States between February 1, 2019 and August 30, 2019. Proposals will be evaluated on the following: • Will the project provide a valuable educational experience to the student in molecular imaging and/or nuclear medicine? • How essential is this grant to the applicant's participation in the proposed research project? (Is the applicant already involved in MI/NM research? Would the applicant be involved even without this grant?) • What is the likelihood that the applicant will be able to complete the project within 3 months? • How qualified is the mentor to provide the applicant with guidance and support?
