Mission Statement

Research in the Cellular and Molecular Radiation Oncology Laboratory has the long-term mission of increasing understanding of the biological effects of ionizing radiations such as X-rays or particle radiations. Working at the cellular and molecular levels, our studies cover a range of topics, including mechanisms of cell death, DNA damage induction and repair processes, bystander effects, and cancer genetics.

 

Research in the laboratory is both basic and translational, ultimately aimed at improving cancer therapy and understanding the risks of unwanted exposure to ionizing radiation.


We are also committed to teaching students at the graduate and post-graduate levels as well as radiation oncology residents in basic concepts of radiation and cancer biology and the proper conduct of basic radiation research.
