Radiobiology and Imaging Program (Abramson Cancer Center)

The Radiobiology and Imaging Program, one of the research programs supported by the Abramson Cancer Center, seeks to improve patient outcomes through the advanced understanding of how ionizing and non-ionizing radiation interacts with cancer and normal tissues. The programmatic goals are: (1) Study molecular mechanisms of radiation response and identify targets to improve radiotherapy. (2) Elucidate mechanisms underlying use of Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and translate to the clinic. (3) Develop methods for measuring and altering tumor oxygenation and metabolic status and understand the molecular events governing cell death by IR and physiological stresses. (4) Develop novel techniques to image the interaction between radiation, PDT and tissues, and (5) Understand the biological effects of Protons to inform their effective clinical use.
