117 Newberry St, Aiken SC
One of the often discussed roles for a new mission at or near the Savannah River Site would be the production of nuclear isotopes by a reactor or accelerator. Our interest in this topic led us to want to know more about the use and supply of medical radioisotopes. Jim will speak to us on the topics of radiopharmaceuticals, their use, production, problems with supply, and future directions.
Mr. Corley is Associate Professor and Nuclear Pharmacist in the Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). He holds a Masters of Science from the Pharmacy University at the University of Georgia.
