The 2004 Society for Molecular Imaging Achievement Award was presented to Sanjiv Sam Gambhir M.D., Ph.D., Director, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) at the Third Annual Meeting of the Society for Molecular Imaging (SMI) in St. Louis, Missouri. This award is given to an individual who has made a fundamental discovery in the field of molecular imaging that has changed the direction of the field, or enabled new in vivo investigations that were not possible prior to their contribution. This prize is awarded once a year at the annual meeting of the Society for Molecular Imaging. Dr. Gambhir is currently funded by Biological and Environmental Research/DOE for research dealing with progenitor cell (adult stem cell) survival imaging. The previous winners of this SMI award have been Dr. Juri Gelovani in 2002 and Dr. Ralph Weissleder in 2003. Dr. Gelovani's research in the field of progenitor cell imaging is funded also by DOE Medical Sciences.
