Award Opportunities

Young Investigator Awards
The World Molecular Imaging Congress proudly recognizes the outstanding commitment to research and endeavor of the next generation of researchers. To honor distinction in their work, the WMIC will sponsor a Young Investigator Award contest. One finalist will be awarded $2,000 USD and will be given the recognition of presenting their talk during the Closing Ceremony, and two runners-up will be awarded $500 USD each. Those wishing to apply for the Young Investigator Award please click here to read about eligibility requirements.

Student Travel Stipends
A major priority for the World Molecular Imaging Congress is to support the next generation of researchers in our field. To further guide their participation and attendance, the WMIC honorably awards approximately $50,000 USD in Student Travel Stipends to students, postdoctoral and qualifying trainees who wish to present abstracts at the congress. Selection of Student Travel Stipend recipients will be based upon the abstract grade and ranking, current membership status as well as travel award application.

Poster Awards
The WMIS will continue its emphasis on recognizing work of high merit presented in the poster category through poster awards of $250. We anticipate awarding 10 such awards to recognize innovative science research by young investigators, including junior faculty.

Industry Selected Poster Award
Abstract authors selected as poster presenters at the WMIC are now eligible to compete for a $500 travel supplement sponsored by our WMIC exhibitors. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to select a limited number of posters that represent ‘best’ utilization of their commercialized technology in molecular imaging research. Participation in this award track is entirely voluntary and requires specific actions to be completed prior to the deadline.
