Steven M. Larson named recipient of SNM's 2005 Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award

TORONTO, Canada--Steven M. Larson, M.D., chief of the nuclear medicine service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute, New York, N.Y., was awarded the 2005 Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award for his distinguished contributions to nuclear medicine. The award was presented during the society's 52nd Annual Meeting June 1822 in Toronto.

Larson, one of the world's foremost experts in targeted radiotherapy and molecular imaging, is also a co-leader of SKI's Imaging and Radiation Sciences Bridge Program and Animal Imaging Core Facility. Larson, who is director of radiology research in the department of radiology and director of the PET Center at MSKCC, is also a professor of radiology at Cornell University's Weill Medical College.

"Dr. Larson's research, which spans three decades, has resulted in many novel findings, especially in understanding cancer," said 2004-05 SNM President Mathew L. Thakur, Ph.D. "As an expert on translational aspects of nuclear medicine, this distinguished scientist has made significant contributions to the advancement of positron emission tomography (PET) as a clinical tool for oncology," he noted. "In 1982, Dr. Larson and colleague Jorge Carrasquillo treated cancer patients with malignant melanoma using iodine-131-labeled monoclonal antibodies--an event that has influenced the history of nuclear medicine," explained Thakur. "While conducting cutting-edge research in targeted therapy and related molecular imaging, Dr. Larson continues to be heavily involved in teaching, administration and clinical care. It is fitting that the 2005 Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award be added to Dr. Larson's impressive list of accomplishments and honors," he added.

Larson's clinical interests focus on the use of PET for diagnostic and molecular imaging; he also cares for and manages patients who receive radiotargeted therapy, particularly for thyroid cancer. His research in the detection of colorectal cancer has been su
