Nuclear Medicine

The mission of the Division of Nuclear Medicine is to be a diverse, multidisciplinary and highly collaborative team of scientists, physicians and healthcare professionals that care for each other, and work together to provide excellent clinical for our patients, advance our research agenda to build the future of our field, and train the next generation nuclear medicine physicians and scientists.

The Division of Nuclear Medicine was founded in 1952, after beginning to use radiopharmaceuticals (molecules tagged with a radioactive isotope) for clinical care and research in the 1940s. Our programs focus on clinical service, research and education involving the medical uses of radiopharmaceuticals, and a dedicated and experienced faculty of approximately 30 physicians and scientists leads these programs.
