May 21, 2021 -- The European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) is mourning the loss of Prof. Marion Hendriks-de Jong, a professor and principal investigator of Translational Molecular Imaging & Therapy (TRACER) in the department of radiology and nuclear medicine at Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She died on 16 May.

Hendriks-de Jong co-authored over 400 peer-reviewed papers and served as principal investigator in several national and international research projects. Her research involved preclinical and translational molecular multimodality imaging and radionuclide therapy.

Hendriks-de Jong also served in several positions at the EANM, such as the chair of the Translational Molecular Imaging & Therapy Committee from 2013 until 2017, as well as vice chair in 2018 and senior adviser in 2019 of the same committee. She was also a long-time member of the group's scientific program council member, reviewer, chairperson, and invited speaker at the association's annual congress.

Most recently, she was involved in the association's women empowerment initiative, where she helped create a mentoring program aimed at women.
