Science Advance: ARRA & the ACTSI Help Advance Innovation through Imaging

As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the ACTSI Research Technologies program received supplemental funding to advance innovation through imaging. The funding allowed the ACTSI to place identical PET imaging resources at the Emory Center for Systems Imaging and Yerkes National Primate Research Center to permit imaging with novel specific agents in humans and non-human primates; install a shared imaging informatics infrastructure; support translational imaging projects focused on cardiovascular disease, Huntington's disease and addiction; and support a Molecular Imaging Fellow.
