Research Abstract

My research interests include developing clinically-applicable genetic predictors of radiation response for radiation therapy in lung cancer, with a focus on both tumor radiosensitivity based on tumor genotype (e.g. by KRAS and EGFR mutations in non-small cell lung cancer) and germline genetic analysis for prediction of increased risk of radiation-induced normal tissue toxicity. Combining these two approaches will allow for an integrated “personalized” radiation therapy approach with a goal of widening the therapeutic window: both increasing the probability of tumor control while reducing the risk of radiation-induced injury.
