Dr. Andrei Iagaru.
The new award honors outstanding achievement in excellence in transformative research (either basic science, translational science, or clinical science) and exceptional mentorship for midcareer professionals.
Iagaru is a professor of radiology and chief of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging at Stanford. He has played an active role in research in PET/MRI and PET/CT for early cancer detection, clinical translation of novel PET radiopharmaceuticals, peptide-based diagnostic imaging and therapy, and targeted radionuclide therapy, the SNMMI said.
The SNMMI created the award in memory of Dr. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, PhD, who passed away in July 2020. He was a professor and the chair of radiology at the Stanford School of Medicine and an internationally recognized pioneer in molecular imaging.
Iagaru received the honor June 14 at SNMMI's annual meeting in Vancouver, Canada.
