Women in Molecular Imaging Network (WIMIN) Interest Group: Strategic Directions


  • Address the pipe-line issues:
    • Attracting women students from chemistry, biology, physics, engineering and clinical medicine to pursue a career in molecular imaging
    • Increasing the number of women post-doctoral fellows and students in molecular imaging that make a successful transition to academic faculty positions
    • Increasing the number of top women from the physical and imaging sciences and clinical medicine who specialize in molecular imaging.
    • Providing early and mid-career women in molecular imaging with the skills and knowledge necessary to advance to higher level administrative positions
    • Providing the industry perspective on mentoring and career challenges
    • Developing global collaborations and mentoring
  • Collect data to identify other issues of relevance, and to review and understand the issues that impede the career advancement of women in molecular imaging
  • Provide a stronger, higher visibility network of women molecular imaging scientists at all career levels
  • Nominate women molecular imaging scientists to serve on relevant journal editorial boards
  • Nominate women molecular imaging scientists for membership in prestigious professional organizations/societies, e.g., National Academies
  • Work with other committees/groups that have the shared goal to advance women in molecular imaging sciences.
  • Presence at the WMIC
  • Coordinate with sister interest groups in other societies to share information and resources
  • Establish a subgroup for graduate students and postdocs who will develop workshop and seminar concepts
