The SAI facility is partially supported by two external grants, the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and a Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) Grant from NCI.

With the successful renewal of the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) from NCI, the SAI core is continuously supported in part by this P30 grant (NCI, P30CA016086-40, PI: Norman Sharpless). Please acknowledge the grant support in your manuscript if you include imaging data acquired from the facility by using the following paragraph.

We thank the Small Animal Imaging Facility at the UNC Biomedical Imaging Research Center for providing the ______ imaging service, and the imaging core is supported in part by an NCI cancer core grant, P30-CA016086-40.

In addition, UNC was again awarded as one of the six Centers for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) with grant support from the NCI (http://nano.cancer.gov/action/programs/ccne.asp ). The SAI is one of the cores supported by the CCNE grant (NCI, U54CA198999-01, PI: Leaf Huang). Please acknowledge the grant support for any CCNE related projects that utilize the facility for imaging studies.
