The SNMMI noted that VanBrocklin has led research on preparing and applying novel radiopharmaceuticals for over 30 years.

These efforts included receptor-based imaging agents for hormone receptors, growth factor receptors, neuroreceptors, and prostate-specific membrane antigens. He also led the development of imaging agents for cardiac blood flow and metabolism, according to the SNMMI.

Currently, VanBrocklin is evaluating a new agent to measure T-cell activation, F-18 fluoro-9-β-d-arabinofuranosylguanine (FaraG), and targeted antibodies to visualize viral reservoirs tied to HIV and long COVID-19, the society said.
