The Sam Gambhir Trailblazer Award is named after Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD, an internationally recognized pioneer in molecular imaging. Gambhir dedicated his career to developing methods of early disease detection, ushering in a new era of molecular imaging to flag signals of disease in its nascent stages. Within the field of radiology, Gambhir was known for the development of positron emission tomography reporter genes, which can flag molecular activity that signals something’s gone awry in the body. Within the imaging community, he was known as a leader and scientist with sprawling expertise and a work ethic to aspire to. More than that, colleagues and many others who knew him said he was a kind and generous friend, a nurturing mentor, and a catalyst for collaboration.
The Sam Gambhir Trailblazer Award honors outstanding achievement and excellence in transformative research (either basic science, translational science, or clinical science) and exceptional mentorship for mid-career professionals. Award recipients will be acknowledged at the SNMMI Annual Meeting during the Wagner Highlights Lecture.
