In my lab we are interested in developing novel treatment modalities and techniques to improve and expand the arsenal of cancer therapies. The main focus of my lab is in the physical and biological aspects of ultra-high dose-rate (FLASH) radiation therapy (RT). Our goals are centered on developing universal real-time dosimetry protocols for FLASH RT, to characterize the functional responses of FLASH irradiation on normal and tumor tissue, and to translate FLASH RT to the clinic. 

Examples of tutorial projects in my lab include:

  1. Development and characterization of novel dosimeters for FLASH RT
  2. Development and optimization of electron FLASH beam lines
  3. Projects related to 3D printing for pre-clinical and clinical shielding designs
  4. Utilizing artificial intelligence for high-throughput analysis of toxicity data (image analysis)
