Radiation Oncology Research

Our Radiation Oncology department participates and conducts scientific research in multidisciplinary environment including such fields as Radiation Biology, Radiation Physics and Clinical Trials.   

An important part of our research program is symptom management. We are involved in the following studies:

  • Nausea and vomiting studies:
    Can we decrease the side effects by giving new medication following radiation therapy for gastrointestinal cancers?
  • Brain cancer treatments:
    Is it possible to slow neurocognitive decline after brain radiation treatment?
  • Quality of life and late effects:
    Advanced and improved radiation therapy techniques lead to longer patient’s survival time.
    How do we control and minimize radiation side effects so that the patient's quality of life has minimum decline after the treatment?
