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

radiopharmacy program from 196998. Over the years, Wolf's research has focused on pharmacokinetic imaging, a novel approach that allows noninvasive studies of drug biodistribution, targeting and metabolism using both nuclear medicine imaging (including positron emission tomography) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques. These studies measure the target pharmacokinetics of antitumor agents. Wolf's interests also include studies on the synthesis and mechanism of action of radiopharmaceuticals.

The senior consultant in radiopharmacy and pharmacology for the LAC/USC Medical Center since 1987, Wolf also served as director of radiopharmacy services there (197187); visiting assistant professor (196263), assistant professor (196365) and associate professor (196570), all with the USC School of Pharmacy; research associate with the USC chemistry department (195962); research associate with Amherst College, Amherst, Mass., (195859); research associate, McGill University, Montreal, Canada (195758); associate professor of organic chemistry, University of Concepcin, Chile (195658), Stagiaire and Attach de Recherches, CNRS, Paris, France (195556); visiting professor, Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1973, 1976 and 1983); and visiting professor, Oak Ridge Associated Universities (196782).

A former president of the Education and Research Foundation for SNM, he received a bachelor's degree in the natural sciences (1948) and a master's degree in organic chemistry (1952), both from the University of the Republic in Montevideo, Uruguay. He earned his doctorate in biochemistry from the University of Paris in France in 1956.

Wolf, a former chair of SNM's Correlative Imaging Council, is a foreign corresponding member of Acadmie Nationale de Pharmacie, Paris, France, and a fellow of both the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. He received the Genia Czerniak Prize in Nuclear Medicine (Israel, 1
