Biomedical Research Foundation (BRF) Recruits Two Eminent Scientists --Pradeep Garg, Ph.D., And Sudha Garg, Ph.D. -- To Run Newly-Created Louisiana Center For Molecular Imaging And Therapy
Date:11/20/2013

rved on numerous committees at his previous institutions and on multiple national and international committees. He is a member of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Society of Radiopharmaceutical Sciences, Radiological Society of North America, American Chemical Society, and the American Association for Cancer Research and served in leadership positions in many of those organizations.

The Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana (BRF) opened the first PET imaging center and the first PET radioisotope production facility (currently named Southern Isotopes) in Louisiana in 1995. Both of these facilities have been a great success and resource to hospitals, health centers and pharmaceutical companies around the state, nation and world. For example:

  • More than 35,000 PET scans have been performed with over $18 million in free scans for indigent patients; and
  • Over $53 million has been invested in PET to introduce and support new clinical technology, radiopharmaceutical manufacturing and related research.

Over the last several years, the BRF has been tracking various emerging sciences and noticed an explosive growth in the field of Molecular Imaging, a discipline at the intersection of molecular biology and in vivo imaging, thus allowing the visualization of any cellular function and molecular processes. The BRF also recognized an ever-growing role of molecular imaging in drug development and translational medical research. The ability to image fine molecular changes offers an incredible number of exciting possibilities for health care including early detection, diagnosis, and even treatment of disease.

The BRF envisioned an opportunity to leverage its existing imaging and radiochemistry expertise to establish a Molecular Imaging Center that creates a unique nation
