Radiobiology of Large Dose Fractions(Video Recording)


Biography

Michael Joiner, Ph.D., is a professor (tenured) at the Wayne State University Radiation Oncology Department. He also serves as the Director of the Radiation Biology Program within the Department. He is well known as the co-author of the book entitled “Basic Clinical Radiation Radiobiology published by CRC Press. His current research areas include: molecular basis for clinical radiation resistance and diversity seen in the response to radiation therapy;development of a complete system of treatment planning based on biologically effective dose; hypoxia and cell proliferation from patient to patient; investigation of soy isoflavones to enhance radiotherapy; gene therapy and therapeutic use of stem cells for radioprotection of normal tissues; development of high-LET radiotherapy; and nanoparticles to enhance the radiation effect on radioresistant tumors.
