about each speaker.
I am trained in physics and medical biophysics specifically radiation transport and imaging theory. I have over 100 publications in the field of radiation therapy and am chair of the Radiation Physics group of Princess Margaret Hospital. I am a Senior Scientist of the Ontario Cancer Institute and the Director of the STTARR Facility at the University Health Network. I have participated in the invention and clinical application of kilovoltage cone-beam CT or image-guided radiation therapy and continue to pursue improvements in targeting radiation. More recently, I have been exploring adaptive treatment methods and developing research questions in the domain of radiobiology using pre-clinical models. I am a member of the Science Council of the AAPM, Professor and Vice-chair in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Toronto.
