Craig Levin, PhD, Professor of Radiology, has been selected as the recipient of the 2023 Mars Shot Fund grant from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).

The grant recognize individuals who have made transformative impact in the field and elevated the value of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. 

 The grant is one of five awarded in the inaugural year of the new SNMMI Mars Shot Research Fund, which was established to provide resources that translate visionary nuclear medicine imaging, radiopharmaceutical therapy and data science research or projects into tools or treatments that will help improve the lives of patients.

Dr. Levin’s Mars Shot grant was awarded based on his proposal, “High-sensitivity imaging of multiple breast cancer biomarkers in a single PET/MRI imaging session.” 

The project will investigate and design highly innovative tools, technologies and methods that, if effective, will enhance the lives of breast cancer patients. Co-investigators include Dr. Eric Rosen, Clinical Professor of Radiology, and Dr. Corinne Beinat, Assistant Professor of Radiology.
