THE POINTSMAN FOUNDATION
The Pointsman Foundation is a not-for-profit 501c(3) organization headquartered in Austin, Texas. Its mission includes the advancement of production and use of stable isotopes and radioisotopes for medical treatments, diagnostics, and research using the patented Magnetically Activated and Guided Isotope Separation (“MAGIS”) process developed by Mark Raizen, Ph.D. (University of Texas at Austin).
The Pointsman Foundation’s ultimate goal is to make lifesaving therapies available to the global medical community by reducing the currently prohibitive costs of the underlying isotopes. While the MAGIS process has been successfully demonstrated in a lab using Lithium isotopes, additional research and development is now required to produce useful quantities of the most needed isotopes.
The Pointsman Foundation will work to alleviate current shortages and ensure high quality and quantity of isotopes for widespread use by the global medical community. Many promising medical isotopes applications remain in early research stages for lack of adequate isotope sources. Pointsman’s collaboration with the medical research community will aid in the further development of novel and highly-effective treatments.
