Canadian Government nominates Kennedy Mang’era to Represent Country at IAEA Meeting

March 10, 2016

On March 14th, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will hold a Technical Meeting on New Ways of Producing Tc99m and Tc99m Generators at its headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The purpose of this meeting is to evaluate alternative routes for the production of Tc99m and Mo99; in particular, linear accelerators and generators using low activity Mo99.

The IAEA has reached out to the Government of Canada looking for an expert to represent the country in the meeting. The individual chosen must have an acute knowledge and experience in the production of Mo99/Tc99m and the development of Mo99/Tc99m generators.

Canadian Isotope Innovations (CII) was honoured to announce that Kennedy Mang’era, former Chief Operating Officer for CII, had been chosen as Canada’s participant.

The shortage of isotopes is a global concern. Thanks in part to our amazing CII team, everyday we get a little closer to a safer, more reliable supply.
