UTD Scientist Named Associate Editor of Contrast Media and Molecular Imaging Journal

RICHARDSON, Texas (September 23, 2005) – UTD chemistry professor A. Dean Sherry, who holds the Cecil and Ida Green Distinguished Chair in Systems Biology #1 and has a joint appointment at U. T. Southwestern Medical School as a professor of radiology, has recently been named Associate Editor of Contrast Media & Molecular Imaging [CMMI], a new Wiley journal that will launch in January 2006.

"I congratulate Dr. Sherry on this editorship that stems from his important contributions and expertise in the field," said Dr. John P. Ferraris, interim dean of the School of Natural Sciences & Mathematics. "It is yet another example of the high esteem in which the faculty of NSM are held by their colleagues throughout the world."

Dr. Sherry, who has more than 30 years of experience and is considered a leader in the field, was pleased that CMMI is featuring his pH images on the cover. The images were taken using compounds he developed at UTD.

The journal is aimed at the academic, medical, and industrial communities, as well as the developers and users of these emerging and rapidly developing technologies, mainly in the areas of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy, but also embracing all other in vivo imaging technologies such as x-Ray, PET/CT (positron emission tomography / computerized tomography), etc. It will publish six issues both in print and online during 2006.
