Our Team

Our team within the Division of Translational Radiation Sciences (DTRS) operates not in silos, but as a single, unified entity to drive cutting-edge breakthroughs in radiation cancer treatment toward clinical trial and develop solutions to save lives in a radiation accident and/or attack.

DTRS offers a multidisciplinary approach to generate breakthrough discoveries using state-of-the-art molecular biology, robust radiation physics and dosimetry, and data analytics, with a focus on population modeling, simulation, and model-based drug development to drive the newest advances in radiation sciences rapidly from preclinical testing to improved clinical outcomes.

Research is sustained and enhanced by broad multidisciplinary collaborations within the University of Maryland School of Medicine and with outside partners. Faculty members are supported by a well-organized team of administrators, quality assurance and regulatory personnel, and data and document management groups who plan, monitor, and track project objectives and deliverables, ensuring that milestone deliveries meet budget, time, and scope targets.

The division receives full-time radiation physics support from four board-certified medical physicists in the Department of Radiation Oncology, as well as additional support from project-dedicated dosimetrists. Statistical support is managed by an experienced radiation scientist/statistician who directs the School of Medicine’s Division of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics and through collaboration with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy Center for Translational Medicine.
