Research Abstract

Our principal research interest is the use of radiation therapy in the multidisciplinary management of breast cancer. In particular, we are involved in the development and optimization of breast-conserving therapy for patients with invasive breast cancer and ductal carcinoma in situ.

This work has involved a series of collaborative studies with radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, and medical geneticists to define the optimal use of a variety of modalities, including radiation therapy. Studies have also included evaluations of radiation therapy after mastectomy to improve survival, and collaborative work with investigators in medical physics to ensure the safest and most effective techniques.
