Tae Jin Kim
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiation Physics
Bio Tae Jin Kim completed his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 (PI: Prof. Carlos H. Hidrovo). His dissertation research was on hydrodynamic and thermal characterization of superhydrophobic surfaces in microchannels with the aid of precision sensors and imaging fluorescent signals. He has served as a short-term postdoc at the University of Texas at Austin and Northeastern University under Prof. Hidrovo's supervision and has recently joined Dr. Guillem Pratx's laboratory in the Radiation Oncology department. His current work is focused in imaging emission of radiotracers in microchannels in the small scale and emission of Cherenkov radiation (radionuclide decay on surfaces).
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our interests include 1) study of the effect of radiation on regulatory cell subpopulations and co-stimulatory molecules, 2) use of radiation as an immune modulator for optimization of transplant regimens, 3) the role of radiation in tumor vaccine strategies, 4) study of new radiosensitizers and radioprotectors, and 5) discovery of new targeted therapies for the treatment of solid tumors.
Albert Koong, MD, PhD
Sue and Bob McCollum Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The focus of my laboratory is to understand the role of hypoxia and the tumor microenvironment on malignant progression. My clinical area of interest is in the application of chemoradiotherapy and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for GI malignancies.
