Dr. Sam Gambhir, pioneer in molecular imaging and early detection of cancer, and long-time collaborator of the Wang Group, passed away at 57 on July 18, 2020

We will not meet another visionary leader who works and dedicates his life to science like Sam in our lifetimes.  But, we will continue his work, even just a fraction of it, and we promise our work will honor his memory.  Indeed, Dr. Gambhir’s legacy will live on forever.
