Sponsor: Henry N. Wagner, Jr, MD Family
Dr. Masahiro Iio was one of Dr. Henry Wagner’s first fellows at John Hopkins. During his time at the university, Dr. Iio worked tirelessly on the development of the first nuclear imaging of the lung.
In 1963, Dr. Iio invited Dr. Wagner on his first trip to Japan, fostering a lifelong connection to the country. Upon the passing of Dr. Iio, Dr. Wagner helped raise donations in honor of his friend’s contributions to nuclear medicine. Dr. Wagner’s wife, Mrs. Ann Wagner, designated the monies toward the creation of the SNMMI Masahiro Iio, MD Award.
