SNM, CMOD plan May PET meeting

SNM and the International Partnership for Critical Markers of Disease (CMOD) will jointly host a meeting on May 1 to examine U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements for manufacturing PET radiopharmaceuticals.

The meeting is scheduled for the Natcher Auditorium at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, from 6:10 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.

SNM President-elect Dr. Michael Graham, Ph.D., director of nuclear medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, said the scientific community must work together to facilitate personalized medicine through the development of advanced imaging techniques and new radiopharmaceuticals that will enable physicians to more precisely locate disease and evaluate and monitor the effectiveness of therapy.

The SNM-CMOD event will take place after SNM's Multimodality Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Symposium, set for April 30 to May 1, also at the NIH.
