The Department of Radiation Oncology section of physics is engaged in a wide range of research projects. By placing particular emphasis on collaborative partnerships across traditional academic boundaries, we enhance our research capacity. We do this by taking full advantage of the UCSF medical center's full integration to the general university campus, as well as with certain international collaborations.
Our department has made connections with the Department of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley.
Within the UCSF University School of Medicine, ongoing projects link the Department of Radiation Oncology with the Sections of Gynecology Oncology.
Additionally, the Department of Radiation Oncology section of physics has developed numerous collaborations with many of the basic science groups in the medical school.
Projects within the department are funded by various institutions such as the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, as well as by industrial collaborations and internal UCSF resources.
The Department of Radiation Oncology section of physics is proud of its resident participation in research, and is happy to facilitate this work. Residents have presented their results at national and international meetings, and published in many widely read journals.
