Michael R. Zalutsky receives SNM's 2007 Paul C. Aebersold Award

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Michael R. Zalutsky, a professor of radiology and biomedical engineering at Duke University in Durham, N.C., received the 2007 Paul C. Aebersold Award for outstanding achievement in basic nuclear medicine science from SNM, the largest international society for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine professionals. SNM is holding its 54th Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

"With this award, the molecular imaging and nuclear medicine community recognizes Dr. Zalutskys intellectual capital, national reputation and prominent role in advancing significant contributions to medical scienceespecially in using molecular targeting to combat cancer," said SNM President Martin P. Sandler. "He has made many contributions to both the basic and applied aspects of molecular therapy and nuclear medicine in a variety of areas, including radionuclide production, radiochemistry and radiation biology," added Sandler.

"Only a small group of highly distinguished researchers have received the Aebersold Award for outstanding achievement in basic science applied to nuclear medicine. Dr. Zalutskys contributions highly qualify to place him in that group of individuals," said Mathew L. Thakur, chair of SNMs Committee on Awards and an Aebersold recipient. Zalutsky received the award, named for Paul C. Aebersold, a pioneer in the biologic and medical application of radioactive materials and the first director of the Atomic Energy Commissions Division of Isotope Development, at the meetings June opening session. Thakur indicated that Zalutskys research has had a significant impact on the concepts and methods that drive the field of therapeutic nuclear medicine, showing how technologies and approaches from the domain of nuclear medicine can have an impact on other disciplines.

Among Zalutskys many accomplishments include his outstanding contributions in developing improved methods for the radiohalogenation of monoclonal antibodies and peptides; i
