Gassan Massarweh - profile revision

Dr. Massarweh is the Director of Cyclotron and Radiochemistry. Dr. Massarweh (PhD, U Hamburg) has worked at UQAM, the MNI, then as Head of the Radiochemistry Unit at Dalhousie and as Head of Cyclotron at the CRCHUM. We are very fortunate that all BIC uses can now benefit from his tremendous experience in radiosynthesis. Dr. Massarweh is a key resource person to make your PET project successful.
