Gold Medal Award

The World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS) Gold Medal is the organization’s highest honor, recognizing exceptional contributions to molecular imaging research that have significantly advanced our understanding of biology and improved patient care. This prestigious award celebrates innovative discoveries and approaches that integrate molecular imaging into science and healthcare. By nominating deserving individuals for this accolade, members of the scientific community can highlight groundbreaking work that has had a profound impact on the field, acknowledging these achievements on a global platform and furthering the mission of molecular imaging in enhancing both scientific knowledge and clinical practice.

Specifically, the WMIS SOP’s state:

  • “The Gold Medal Award shall be awarded to up to three (3) recipients per year for a major research contribution to the field of Molecular Imaging within the scope of the Society’s purposes.”
