A 2017 interview with Dr. Charlie Maitz with the University of Missouri, School of Medicine and College of Veterinary Medicine shares how he found himself in veterinary radiation oncology, his recent work and the role the Radiation Research Society has played in his career.
A 2016 Inteview with Dr. Olga Martin, radiation biologist at Peter MacCallum Cancer Center. She has a long history in radiation research. Beginning in basic science, Dr. Martin has transitioned to applicable uses. Watch to learn how she uses her past research in her present work, as well as projects she is currently working on.
A 2016 interview with Maureen Aliru, MD-PhD student at MD Anderson. She shares her project from Sunil Krishnan's lab. The project uses gold nanoparticles, a known radiosensitizer, in the cell's nucleus. The lab hopes to use the information to help determine better decisions concerning radiation and dose.
A 2016 interview with Stephen McMahon, PhD, of Queen's University Belfast, discusses his work in predicting radiation sensitivity from phenotypic characteristics. His lab, with the goal of building better models, focuses primarily on DNA damage and repair.
An 2016 interview with Sijumon Kunjacha, PhD, of the Department of Radiation Oncology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School discusses his study of a dual-targeting strategy to specifically amplify damage in the tumor neoendothelium. The resulting tumor vascular disruption substantially improved the therapeutic outcome than targeting the cells alone
