Sung-Cheng (Henry) Huang receives 2010 Benedict Cassen Prize for Research in Nuclear Medicine
Date:6/7/2010

SALT LAKE CITYSung-Cheng (Henry) Huang, D.Sc., a pioneer in the development of positron emission tomography (PET), was awarded the 2010 Benedict Cassen Prize during SNM's 57th Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. This honor is given every two years by the Education and Research Foundation for the Society of Nuclear Medicine, Inc. to a living scientist or physician/scientist whose work has led to a major advance in basic or clinical nuclear medicine science.

Huang, a professor in the departments of molecular and medical pharmacology and biomathematics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA since 1976, has constantly advocated biomedical imaging as a rigorous measurement tool and science. His collaborative work with biologists and physicians to demonstrate the value of quantitative biomedical imaging has led to several important advances in understanding the biological changes associated with many diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurological conditions.

"Dr. Huang has really laid the groundwork for a lot of the science we use today," said Michael M. Graham, Ph.D., M.D., 2009� president of SNM. "He is a valuable member of the scientific and medical community, and we are honored to recognize him for his many contributions to nuclear medicine."

Huang is currently the director of the Image Analysis Center at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and has served as the director of the National Institutes of HealthUCLA Systems and Integrative Biology Pre-doctoral Training Program since 1996. Many of his research papers are among the most-cited in nuclear medicine. He also played an important role in the developments of the earliest PET and CT scanners.

"Being chosen for the Cassen Prize is a great honor and fulfilling achievement," Huang said. "I feel extremely grateful to my colleagues for bestowing this prestigious award upon me."
