All respect for Dr. Anna Celler

Dr. Anna Celler is the recipient of the Gold medal this year by the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists (COMP), which is being celebrated tomorrow (September 14) in Montreal. Anna taught the very first course I (Arman) took in the field of nuclear medicine. She has had 27 years of tireless efforts, having mentored many students in her Medical Imaging Research Group, and made contributions on multiple frontiers in nuclear medicine. What makes Anna especially stand out in my mind is how much she cares about the well-being of the students she works with, and how she has fought through the years to establish a legacy of research and service at our institutions. Anna retired recently, though thankfully visiting on a regular basis. I hope that we can carry forward a part of Anna’s legacy, and I’m grateful that she will continue to work with us and advise us as we set a path forward. Thank you Anna!
