The focus of our work is to develop personalized precision radiation medicine to enhance treatment efficacy with less toxicity, enabling HOPE for curing cancer without compromising on quality of life.

Our goal is to develop in depth understanding the science of physical biology in oncology though multi-disciplinary and translational approaches in pre-clinical and clinical studies. Specifically, we seek to understand i) how the bone and marrow (B&M) —as an integrated system—respond to radiation treatment, ii) macro- and micro- environment of B&M, its role in malignant cell (hematologic and metastatic) homing, iii) comprehensive understanding of role of radiation targeting malignancies and potential interaction with local and systemic environment (affecting the physiological system). Our interdisciplinary group developed a global health consortium and works towards theranostics by combining molecular information and functional image guidance with therapy such as total marrow irradiation (TMI) to accelerate personalized medicine.
