Translational Research Group

Welcome to the Translational Research Group!

Welcome to the Translational Research Group in the Department of Radiation OncologyDivision of Medical Physics at Stanford University. We are a diverse group of scientists with backgrounds in dedicated to physics, computer science, and biology. Our goal is to develop tools in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for stereotactic radiosurgery and tumor segmentation. Our research utilizes deep learning approaches to solve clinical and pre-clinical challenges found in Radiation Oncology.  We work closely with collaborators at UT Southwestern and MD Anderson.

Areas of interest:

  • Artificial Intelligence Driven Multiple Brain Metastases (BM) Management
  • Total Body Organs-at-Risk (OARs) Auto-segmentation
  • FLASH Histology Image-to-Dose
