Darrell Fisher Wins ACS Regional Industrial Innovation Award

April 2004
ETD’s Darrell Fisher and Energy’s Anna Gutowska and Novella Bridges won the American Chemical Society’s 2004 Regional Industrial Innovation Award. This award is given to teams and individuals whose creative innovations have contributed to the commercial success of their company and, consequently, to the health of the local and regional economy. The award was given for the development of radionuclide-polymer composites, or “radiogels.” When these composites are injected into tumors, they permeate tissue and displace extracelluar fluid, undergo a temperature-difference phase transition, and form a water-based solid that contains the therapeutic radionuclide for effective delivery of high-dose radiation.
