Freimann Professor of Physics Ani Aprahamian recently presented at two virtual conferences in Armenia.
The Armenia Medical International Committee (AMIC) virtual course was held July 12 and had over 650 participants. Aprahamian's presentation was "Isotopes for new pharmaceutical applications." The AMIC consists of representatives from Armenian healthcare associations throughout the Diaspora. Its purpose is to improve healthcare in Armenia through coordination of efforts among our member organizations.
"Nuclear Curriculum for Doctors of Radiology and Oncology in Armenia" was held on September 5. The event was sponsored by the Armenian Association of Radiologists, AMIC, Armenian Physicians Alliance, and the Medical School of Armenia in Yerevan. Aprahamian’s talk title was “Isotope production beyond diagnostics to therapeutics.”
Aprahamian recently completed a Fulbright Fellowship that allowed her to continue her research and give lectures on medical physics and nuclear science to expand the expertise in this area in Armenia. Fulbright Fellowships are intended for intercultural relations, cultural diplomacy, and intercultural competence between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.
