Divisions of Radiation Oncology
Clinical Radiation Oncology
In order to provide the best possible care to the patient, the patient’s evaluation and treatment is managed by members of individual multidisciplinary clinical cancer programs that are organized by cancer diagnosis.
Our division is composed of a multi-disciplinary group of medical professionals, including medical physics faculty, medical physics residents, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, dosimetrists, dosimetry students, radiation therapy technologists, IT personnel, linac engineers, and visiting scholars.
There has been an explosion of discoveries in stress signal transduction, DNA damage repair, cellular senescence, and cell-cycle checkpoints in recent years; in many cases ionizing radiation has been used as the model agent in such studies.
