Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for 2nd Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facility at Stanford

January 31, 2024

On Wednesday, January 31, 2024, the department held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for our second Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facility (CRF) in the Stanford Research Park (SRP) at 1701 Page Mill Rd.

This is a significant milestone in expanding Stanford's current radiochemistry facilities and will allow for additional capacity to synthesize short- and longer-lived isotopes, helping advance research for theragnostic radiolabeling, support dispensing for human translation, and provide new capabilities for solid targets. The completion and opening of this second CRF site has been a decade-long process that has been supported by countless people to help realize the late Dr. Sanjiv "Sam" Gambhir's vision and presents new opportunities to train not only the next generation of radiochemists but research scientists studying the diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of disease to improve patient care.
