Laboratory of Cellular & Molecular Radiation Oncology, Department of Radiation Oncology in affiliation with the MGH Cancer Center
Investigators from MGH Radiation Oncology and the MGH Cancer Center are committed to improving our understanding of the biological effects of ionizing radiations and other agents used in the treatment of cancer patients. Working at the molecular, cellular as well as tissue levels, studies cover a range of topics, including precision radiation medicine, DNA damage response, circulating tumor cells, mechanisms of cell death, and bystander effects. Research in the laboratory is both basic and translational, aimed at improving cancer therapy and understanding and reducing the risks of exposure to ionizing radiation.
We are also committed to teaching students at the graduate and post-graduate levels as well as radiation oncology residents in basic concepts of radiation and cancer biology and the proper conduct of basic radiation research.
