 The event will highlight the isotopes that are the next frontier in radiotherapeutics development, exploring alternatives to industry staples like Lutetium-177 and Actinium-225. Additionally, the discussions will delve into supply chain complexities, the role of CDMOs in bringing radiotherapeutics to patients, and the optimal timing for commercial-scale product development.

 Nusano’s production platform enables the creation of rare and hard-to-produce medical radioisotopes in quantities needed for commercial-stage diagnostics and therapeutics. A reliable supply of radioisotopes is an important requirement for drugmakers developing and manufacturing next-generation pharmaceuticals needed to advance the fight against cancer.

 A live question and answer session will follow the moderated panel discussion.

Dr. Johnnie Jose Orozco

About Dr. Johnnie José Orozco
Dr. Johnnie José Orozco, MD, PhD is a practicing oncologist who studies novel ways to treat blood cancers, and how to make the transplantation of blood-forming stem cells safer and more effective. His research develops radioimmunotherapies that use immune system proteins known as antibodies, stably linked to radionuclides, to selectively target radioactivity to cancer cells, sparing normal tissues. The antibody and its radioactive payload locate and kill tumor cells by damaging their DNA. The goal is to maximize outcomes for cancer patients and minimize off target treatment effects with radioimmunotherapy.

About Nusano, Inc.
Nusano is a privately held medical technology company committed to bringing stability and innovation to the rapidly emerging and critically undersupplied medical radioisotopes market. Nusano’s proprietary ion source is smaller and more efficient than existing production methods. This results in significantly greater yields and allows for the simultaneous manufacturing of multiple radioisotopes. Nusano’s technologies will supply the fight against cancer and support diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceutical development. The company’s state-of-the-art production facility opens Q1 2025 in West Valley City, Utah. For more, please visit
