AjitOur very dear friend and colleague, Prof. Dr. Ajit Kumar Padhy, passed away suddenly on the 22nd of August 2013 after suffering from a massive heart attack.

Prof Padhy was a Senior Consultant in the Singapore General Hospital, Department of Nuclear Medicine & PET since September 2005. Prior to that, he was the Head of Nuclear Medicine, IAEA, in the Division of Human Health from 1997 to 2004, and he was Faculty of Nuclear Medicine, AIIMS, New Delhi, India since the 1970’s.

I was fortunate enough to meet with and have dinner with Dr. Padhy in March, 2013 and was so impressed with the work that he had taken on to bring Molecular Imaging and Therapies to all parts of the world. He gave his time, energy and finances to make sure that all had access to life changing thearpies.

Prof Ajit Padhy is survived by his wife and two sons. Our deepest condolences and prayers of peace go out to them.
