Award winner: This movie received the AIPES Press and Media Award 2013! The movie on the astonishing effects of radiopeptides in cancer is freely available for educational purposes to students and patients. It explains the application of radiolabeled peptides for cancer therapy in nuclear medicine. After injection into the body the molecules bind to somatostatin receptors over-expressed on tumor cells, whereas normal cells have a much lower density or no receptors at all. Excellent results are being obtained in patients as also shown on the sans in the video.

Darrell Fisher presents an excellent overview of medical isotopes, their various methods of production and use in diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Today, nuclear medicine is practised in over 100 countries around the world. Tremendous progress has been made in being able to "see" diseases and treat them.

Robert Schenter and Michael Korenko demonstrate how spent nuclear fuel can be transmuted into valuable radioisotopes for nuclear medicine. Spent nuclear fuel is extremely valuable as fuel for fast reactors and source of producing radioisotopes for nuclear medicine in fast reactors, like the Fast Flux Test Facility, FFTF.

Robert Schenter specialized in the production of radioisotopes in reactors for nuclear medicine. He dedicated much of his time teaching students this art and science as well as teaching national leaders the value of nuclear medicine. He spent many years trying to get the government to support production of radioisotopes in the United States.

"In science, credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not the man to whom the idea first occurs." This year's Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer awardee, a true son of the Johns Hopkins, is both a person to whom ideas first occur and, especially, one who, in the name of nuclear medicine, convinces the world of their veracity and usefulness.
