Research

Ambient ExperienceThe nationally recognized faculty in the UC Davis Department of Radiation Oncology focus their research on innovative treatment approaches to manage many cancers types.

Our broad interests include clinical trials and translational research on a variety of subjects. Some of our focus is on low-dose radiation biology, 3-D conformal radiation therapy, intensity-modulated radiotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery, high-dose radiotherapy, chemoprevention, quality of life, image-guided radiotherapy and translational research. Numerous departmental databases have been established that emphasize clinical outcomes and image-guided radiotherapy for performing high-quality, retrospective research. Our research has been published in many high-profile journals, and is frequently cited by radiation oncologists outside our facility.
