SNM recognizes contributions of Walter Wolf with 2006 Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Walter Wolf, distinguished professor of pharmaceutical sciences and chair of the Biomedical Imaging Science Initiative at the University of Southern California--and a pioneer in the field of radiopharmacy--was awarded the 2006 Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award for his contributions to the nuclear medicine profession. The award was presented during SNM's 53rd Annual Meeting June 37 in San Diego.

"For nearly 50 years, Walter Wolf has continued to make major breakthroughs in the study of human biology and disease," said SNM President Peter S. Conti, professor of radiology, pharmacy and bioengineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. "He realized the need for pharmacists to specialize in the field of radioactive drug products when he joined USC in the late 1950s, establishing USC's radiopharmacy program in the 1960s and running it for nearly 20 years," said the director of the PET Imaging Science Center at USC's Keck School of Medicine. "Through his unparalleled talents and dedication, Dr. Wolf played an instrumental role in advancing the profession," said Conti, who as SNM president speaks for 16,000 physicians, technologists and scientists in the United States and 78 other countries who are members of the multidisciplinary society.

"It is an honor to receive the Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award," said Wolf, a distinguished professor of pharmaceutical sciences at USC since 1998. He explained that while it's wonderful to get recognition for past research, "I am much more excited about the work I've yet to do." The 1999 Paul C. Aebersold Award recipient continues to be active in the field and to expand his research activities into new dimensions of molecular imaging.

Wolf founded the USC Pharmacokinetic Imaging Program and has been its director since 1996. A full professor in the School of Pharmacy since 1970 and distinguished professor since 1998, Wolf served as director of its
