Fox Chase Programs
My research involves working to develop new treatment techniques, using IMRT, that help men preserve erectile function following radiation therapy for prostate cancer. Currently, I am a co-primary investigator of this clinical trial at Fox Chase. I am also developing a technique to detect recurrent prostate cancer earlier using MR spectroscopy and repeat prostate biopsy, with funding from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). This will be available as part of a clinical trial. I am a co-author of several research papers and book chapters on prostate cancer, IMRT and testicular cancer.
I am dedicated to the future of radiation research. I serve on national committees of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO). I twice received the Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) during my residency at Fox Chase. In 2005, I received ASTRO's Young Investigator Award.Top
