Laboratory of Cellular & Molecular Radiation Oncology
The Laboratory of Cellular & Molecular Radiation Oncology, established in the MGH Charlestown Navy Yard Building CNY149 in 1997, brings together investigators from MGH Radiation Oncology and the Center for Cancer Research (CCR). Laboratory 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, broadly aimed at improving cancer therapy with a special focus on advancing the biological basis of treatments with ionizing radiation.
Our prior lab website under the retired address cmrol.mgh.harvard.edu was completely overhauled in 2015 using Nirvana & WordPress. In addition to lab research at our CNY149 location, the site now also supports radiation biology research activities in the Department, thereby complementing the official MGH Radiation Oncology website at https://www.massgeneral.org/cancer-center. We hope you enjoy what we have put together.
