Liyong Lin PhD, Associate Professor at Emory University School of Medicine
As an expert on Monte Carlo (MC) methods and proton radiotherapy, I previously chaired the NRG workgroup for the application of MC methods in clinical trials and currently chair the NRG workgroup for stereotactic body proton therapy/ I am the physics co-chair of a newly approved NCI Phase 3 clinical trial “Phase III Prospective Randomized Trial of Primary Lung Tumor Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Followed by Concurrent Mediastinal Chemoradiation for Locally-Advanced Nonsmall Cell Lung Cancer” NRG-LU 008. I also chair of the AAPM task group TG349 to validate MC methods in commercial treatment planning systems. I have 77 peer-reviewed journal papers with H-index of 25 (Scopus). I am also the author of 2 AAPM task group reports, 1 PTCOG lung committee consensus paper and 1 NRG MC Workgroup paper.
The recorded seminar will be available after the event.
