SNM names Sanjiv Sam Gambhir as recipient of 2006 Paul C. Aebersold Award

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, a professor of radiology and bioengineering, director of the Molecular Imaging Program and head of the nuclear medicine division at Stanford University, received SNM's 2006 Paul C. Aebersold Award for outstanding achievement in basic nuclear medicine science during the society's 53rd Annual Meeting in San Diego.

"I feel very honored to be selected for such an important award," said Gambhir, who previously held the position as the director of Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging at the University of California, Los Angeles. "SNM has been my home ever since I was a student entering the field in 1986. It is truly a privilege to continue to learn from others in the field and to advance imaging techniques for improved management of disease," he added. "Molecular imaging is truly in its infancy, and I am confident that nuclear medicine is going to undergo some marked growth but will benefit from embracing non-radionuclide strategies in molecular imaging as well," said the vice president of SNM's Molecular Imaging Center of Excellence.

Gambhir, who is known to move easily and quickly across physical, biological and medical discipline boundaries, has an impressive list of accomplishments. Much of his lab's research involves looking at which molecules could be targeted to image a number of processes, with a particular focus on cancer and cardiovascular disease.

As a researcher, he uses technologies such as micro positron emission tomography, bioluminescence optical imaging with a charge coupled-device camera, fluorescence optical imaging and micro computerized axial tomography for investigation with small animal models. He and his laboratory researchers have developed methods to image gene/cell therapy in living subjects, and he has developed several small animalimaging strategies for studying basic cell/molecular biological events including signal transduction, gene expression and cell trafficking.
