Welcome to Radiation Oncology
The mission of this department is three-fold: to deliver world-class care on a daily basis to our patients using the most advanced technologies available; to conduct groundbreaking basic, translational and clinical research; and to provide quality education to the next generation of medical practitioners and scientists.
Dr. Steve Jiang, Professor and Vice Chair of Radiation Oncology and Chief of the Division of Medical Physics and Engineering, has been awarded $4 million by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) to develop new technology to treat lung cancer patients with heavy ions. A total of $9.6 million was awarded to UT Southwestern researchers by CPRIT in the latest round of funding.
The Department of Radiation Oncology welcomes two physicians this month to our growing team.
Grants totalling more than $2.6 million have been awarded to researchers in medical physics and molecular radiation biology.
Nathan Kim, M.D., Ph.D., has joined the faculty of UT Southwestern Radiation Oncology as Assistant Professor and member of the breast cancer team.
Our heavy ion initiative was highlighted during a national summit on cancer led by Vice President Joe Biden.
