The high impact journal Dalton Transactions from the Royal Society of Chemistry, which covers all aspects of inorganic and organometallic chemistry, including biological inorganic chemistry, has newly published the themed issue Frontiers in Radionuclide Imaging and Therapy, A chemical journey from naturally radioactive elements to targeted theranostic agents dedicated to the contributions of our colleague Isabel Santos to the advancement of science in the field of radiopharmaceutical chemistry on the occasion of her recent retirement. This special issue guest-edited by our colleague João D. G. Correia and Professors Angela Casini and Chris Orvig from the Universities of Cardif and British Columbia, respectively, covers various relevant aspects of the use of radionuclides in biomedical/clinical applications. Apart from Isabel´s outstanding contributions to the inorganic chemistry community, the fact that she was the first President of the Centre for Nuclear Sciences and Technology (C2TN) is highlighted. Moreover, it is also emphasised that Isabel pioneered in Europe a move towards inclusion of women in science and has been a role model for many of her female students, co-workers and international collaborators.
Congratulations and thank you Isabel.
