  • IT platforms for data acquisition and analysis ensure quality assurance and continuous improvement.


Scientific research gives rise to groundbreaking approaches to patient care. The Department of Radiation Oncology includes two laboratories that are leading the way in small molecular radiation mitigator discovery. We are also one of only four Centers for Medical Countermeasures Against Radiation (CMCR).

The Basic Science Program at the Department of Radiation Oncology specializes in:

  • the development of novel small molecule radiation mitigators
  • the development of programs for stem cell transplantation
  • the biology of bone marrow, intestinal, and other epithelial organ stem cells
