Departmental Grand Rounds – Radiation Biology

On April 27, 2021, We were thrilled to host our first radiation/cancer biology Grand Rounds speaker, Dr. Julie Schwarz, Professor of Radiation Oncology, Vice Chair of Research, and Director of the Cancer Biology Division at Washington University. She gave an inspiring lecture on using functional imaging and cancer genomics for predicting radiation sensitivity of cervical cancers.
