    Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics)


    Guillem Pratx, PhD is an assistant professor of Radiation Oncology and Medical Physics at Stanford University. During his doctoral and post-doctoral research, he developed several innovative instruments and algorithms for in vivo cancer imaging. Now, as head of the Physical Oncology Laboratory, he investigates how novel physical approaches can solve longstanding problems in oncology. For instance, his lab uses single-cell radionuclide imaging to measure the uptake of clinical PET tracers in heterogeneous cell populations and, in this way, derive a new interpretation of PET scans that accounts for factors such as cell diversity (cancer cells, immune cells and stromal cells), tumor heterogeneity and cell metabolism. Other areas of investigation include in vivo cell tracking and radiation therapy. Dr. Prof. Pratx was named a Damon Runyon Innovator and a Society of Nuclear Medicine Young Investigator. He has published over 50 papers and been principal investigator on several NIH grants.

    Jacob Haimson Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering


    Dr. Xing is currently the Jacob Haimson Professor of Medical Physics and Director of Medical Physics Division of Radiation Oncology Department at Stanford University. He also holds affiliate faculty positions in Department of Electrical engineering, Bio-X and Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford. Dr. Xing’s research has been focused on medical imaging, treatment planning, artificial intelligence in medicine, image guided interventions, nanomedicine, and applications of molecular imaging in radiation oncology. He has made unique and significant contributions to each of the above areas. Dr. Xing is an author on more than 300 peer reviewed publications, a co-inventor on many issued and pending patents, and a co- investigator or principal investigator on numerous NIH, DOD, RSNA, ACS and corporate grants. He is a fellow of AAPM (American Association of Physicists in Medicine) and AIMBE (American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering). He is also on the editorial boards of a number of journals in medical physics and medical imaging.
