I have been in the field of radiobiology for 30 years and have literally given hundreds of lectures, published over 400 peer reviewed papers and have received many awards, including the Failla Lecture from Radiation Research in 2008. I have had continuous funding from NCI since 1980 with an RO1 that is in its 25th year and a PO1 grant that is in its 23rd year of funding. With respect to stem cells, I was involved in the first paper reporting the relative radioresistance of glioma stem cells, published in Nature in 2006 by Bao et al. Since then I have served on graduate committees and have mentored graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who have continued this work.
