Dr. Jadvar is currently a tenured Associate Professor of Radiology in the Keck School of Medicine, at the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, California, USA. He has a joint appointment as Associate Professor of Urology and is a member of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. He is the past president and fellow of both the American College of Nuclear Medicine (ACNM) and the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).

Dr. Jadvar received the BS degree in chemical engineering from Iowa State University, Ames (1982), MS in biomedical engineering from University of Wisconsin, Madison (1984), MS in computer engineering (1986) and PhD in bioengineering (1988), both from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, the MD degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine (1993), Master’s in Public Health (MPH) degree from Harvard University (2005), and the Executive Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from USC Marshall Scholl of Business (2007). He was an intern in internal medicine at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) during 1993-94, a diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine resident at Stanford University, during 1994-98, and a clinical fellow in positron emission tomography (PET) with the Harvard Medical School Joint Program in Nuclear Medicine, during 1998-99. He has completed executive educational certificate programs in clinical effectiveness at Harvard Medical School, and in leadership at University of Pennsylvania (Wharton).

He was a Visiting Associate Scientist in Bioengineering at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) during 2001-06. Dr. Jadvar is on the leadership editorial boards of Journal of Nuclear Medicine, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (Associate Editor), Radiology (Consultant to the Editor), and Clinical Nuclear Medicine (Deputy Editor), and is member of the editorial boards of many other peer-reviewed journals. He is the past recipient of the SNMMI Mark Tetalman Young Investigator Award, the Western Regional SNMMI Distinguished Scientist Award and Distinguished Service Award, the Academy of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Research Distinguished Investigator Award, the inaugural fellowship in the USC Center for Excellence in Research, the inaugural Prof. Ajit Padhy Award from the World Association of Radiopharmaceutical and Molecular Therapy (WARMTH), the SNMMI PET Center of Excellence Peter E. Valk Memorial Award, and the Best Mentor Awards from both USC and the ACNM. Dr. Jadvar serves as the nuclear medicine physician representative on the Advisory Committee on Medical Uses of Isotopes (ACMUI) of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

He has been a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded investigator and serves on multiple NIH review panels (with one term as a chartered member for MEDI study section), as well as the Department of Defense (DOD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs-Prostate Cancer Research Program and the Imaging Technology and Informatics Review Panel of the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). He has written more than 150 peer-reviewed journal articles, published 4 books, 39 book chapters, 9 U.S. and European patents, numerous conference abstracts and full articles, and has had more than 200 invited speaker presentations and visiting professorships at national and international venues. His research interests include applications of PET in clinical outcome research and in translational molecular imaging research with particular current interest in prostate cancer, theranostics, and targeted radionuclide therapy.
