2007 Fred C. Davison Distinguished Scientist Award
Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness (CNTA) is pleased to announce that Dr. Hadyn T. Williams of the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) is the recipient of the 2007 CNTA Distinguished Scientist Award. This lifetime achievement award, which honors scientists and engineers who have made outstanding contributions during their careers, was presented at the CNTA's 16th Annual Edward Teller Lecture and Banquet, on November 29, 2007.
Dr. Williams is Associate Professor of Radiology in the School of Medicine at MCG, and serves as Section Chief for Nuclear Medicine. In addition, he acts as the Medical Director for the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program in the Department of Biomedical and Radiological Technologies.
He has more than twenty years of research and teachning experience in nuclear medicine and technology, has published more than 60 technical articles, and is well-known nationally as a leader in his diverse specialties. He recently took office as President of the American College of Nuclear Physicians after completing an eight-year term as President of the Georgia Society of Nuclear Medicine.
A significant breakthrough since he joined the MCG faculty full-time in 2002 was bringing Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) to the Central Savannah River Area. The incorporation of PET/CT images into the clinical decision-making process for cancer patients improves the proposed therapies in an estimated one-third of all patients.
Dr. Williams graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alabama - Tuscaloo, and achieved his M.D. at the University of South Alabama.
