NIH-DOE Bioimaging Capabilities

Information Requested

The NIH and DOE seek input from key intramural and extramural community stakeholders, including researchers in academia and industry clinicians, and scientific societies and advocacy organizations, as well from interested members of the public, on strategies to advance the utility of high resolution bioimaging technologies that already exist and that need to be created. Imaging techniques of interest have resolutions from sub-nanometer to micrometer and would be applied to biological samples from nanometer to millimeter size. Input sought includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Responses may be typed directly or copied and pasted into each box. The limit for each box is 2000 characters.

Question Title
