<h3 id="welcome">Welcome!</h3>
<p>Thank you for your interest in ITK-SNAP! By using this program you are joining an ever growing community of users from research labs around the world. ITK-SNAP is an open-source software application made possible by the committment of dedicated developers, who often make contributions on a volunteer basis. Original development of ITK-SNAP was supported by the U.S. National Library of Medicine through PO 467-MZ-202446-1. Subsequent development of ITK-SNAP version 2.0 has been supported by the U.S. National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and BioEngineering and the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience through grant 1 R03 EB008200-01. Development of ITK-SNAP versions 3.0 - 3.6 has been supported by the NIH grant 1R01 EB014346.</p>
<p>ITK-SNAP is the result of over 15 years of work by many researchers, software engineers and students. Please visit the <a href="http:/itksnap.org/credits.php">Credits page</a> to learn about the team that made ITK-SNAP possible!</p>
