Government Funding Agency Panel - New Initiatives and Grantsmanship

The Interagency Modeling and Analysis Group (IMAG) currently has participants from seven federal agencies of the U.S. government. This group was formed in 2003 and meets monthly solely from the interest of the program officers involved, who have a shared interest in applying modeling and analysis methods to biomedical systems. This panel will discuss various funding initiatives and opportunities supported by the IMAG agencies, in addition to the Multiscale Modeling Initiative that created the Consortium that is presenting at this meeting. This panel will also bring together agency representatives from various foreign countries to discuss the worldwide efforts that are currently being promoted to model the physiome.
