As a medical physicist, Chunhui Han, Ph.D., works hand-in-hand with our radiation oncologists to ensure that each radiation treatment is scrupulously calibrated, meets the most exacting standards and provides maximum benefit to patients while minimizing side effects.
 
A gifted scientist with degrees in particle physics, computer science and engineering, Dr. Han has been with City of Hope for more than a decade, training radiation professionals and maintaining quality control protocols for a wide variety of radiation treatment systems.
 
After undergraduate studies at Beijing University in China, Dr. Han received his master’s degree and Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He considers City of Hope an ideal environment where his work impacts patients' lives daily, and he has the freedom to choose his area of research “to achieve professional and personal growth.”
