National nuclear medicine award won by IPEM Fellow

A PRESTIGIOUS national award has been won by an IPEM Fellow for his outstanding contribution to nuclear medicine.

Dr Roger Staff was presented with the Norman Veall Medal, which is awarded annually by the British Nuclear Medicine Society Council to a scientist who has made an outstanding contribution to the science and/or practice of nuclear medicine in the United Kingdom.

The award to Dr Staff made it a hat-trick of wins for the Medical Physics Department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, which has now won the award more times than any other department in the country.

Dr Staff is Head of Imaging Physics and leads the NHS Grampian imaging physics team, which is an internationally recognised centre of excellence.  A renowned research scientist worldwide, Dr Staff is currently the Deputy Director of IPEM’s Science, Research and Innovation Council and is chair of the Scottish Nuclear Medicine Heads of Department group. He has won numerous prizes for his work, including the IPEM Founders Prize for his work on imaging dementia.

In winning the Norman Veall Medal, Dr Staff has followed in the footsteps of former IPEM President Peter Sharp OBE and Honorary Fellow John Mallard OBE, who both worked in the department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
