Funding opportunity for Monash University researchers
Funding opportunity for Monash University researchers - Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) application and new technology development with Siemens, Australia.
Monash Biomedical Imaging Laboratories (MBI) is a Monash University research platform that comprises human and animal imaging technologies with supporting expertise in physics, image analysis, radiography and other disciplines.
Monash University and Siemens Australia Pty Ltd (Siemens) have formed a collaborative arrangement in the field of biomedical imaging as a framework to support MBI and for development of a longer term R&D partnership. Monash and Siemens are working jointly in areas of imaging application and new technology development to improve the use of biomedical imaging in the clinical setting.
In 2012 there will be three funding rounds, each focusing on a specific imaging modality: - magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - applications due 9am, Monday 16 April, 2012,
- molecular imaging (PET & SPECT) - applications due Tuesday 31 July, 2012, and
- computed tomography (CT) and X-ray imaging - applications due Wednesday 31 October, 2012.
The current round will focus on applications and technology developments related to MRI.
Siemens seeks to identify researchers and project areas at Monash University that may be of interest for collaboration, and potential investment. Monash University researchers interested in establishing a research or development collaboration with Siemens are invited to submit a Project Proposal on the attached form. There is no limit to the number of projects that can be proposed by any individual researcher or research group. The request for funding should be in the order of $20k-100k, plus any in kind contributions, where relevant. If you wish to apply, please complete the attached Word document (3-page limit per project proposal and work plan) and return by email to Dr Lisa Hutton (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9am Monday 16 April, 2012.
