Associate Professor (Research), Radiation Oncology - Radiation and Cancer Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the design and discovery of synthetic, and natural product inspired small molecules which can be used as probes for developing understanding of biological phenomena, including protein-protein interactions and modulation of signal transduction pathways. My laboratory employs the tools of synthetic medicinal chemistry, molecular modeling and chemical biology for translational research in drug discovery, development, imaging and radiation.
Andrew Philip Martella
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Martella is a fellowship-trained radiation oncologist and a clinical assistant professor of radiation oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
His clinical interests include gynecologic, breast, thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and central nervous system cancers. His experience encompasses the full range of radiotherapy techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), CyberKnife radiosurgery, eye plaque brachytherapy, and prostate and gynecologic high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy.
Dr. Martella is dedicated to improving the quality of care and the patient experience. He deeply values a close relationship with his patients and their loved ones. He feels that each patient experiences healthcare in a unique and individual way. By recognizing and responding to those individual needs Dr. Martella provides a truly patient-centered experience. He has helped conduct research into noninvasive deep brain stimulation and chromosomal topography,and published on the topic of treating rectal cancer without radiation. He also was the primary contributing author of chapters in the book First Aid for the United States Medical Licensing Examination.
Dr. Martella has delivered presentations at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. Topics include chemotherapy and radiotherapy in endometrial cancer.
Among the honors for scholarship that Dr. Martella has received, he graduated first in his class at Duke University School of Medicine. He was also elected during medical school into Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
Dr. Martella’s community service has included a position on the board of directors of Camp Good Days and Special Times, a nonprofit organization that provides services for children who have cancer, have a parent or sibling with cancer, or have lost a parent or sibling to the disease. He has served on several leadership roles and has a deep dedication to furthering diversity and inclusion throughout the healthcare system.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiation Physics
Bio For the past 4 years as a post-doctorate fellow at the Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University, I have dedicated my work on the development of primary cancer and metastatic tumor-mouse models for the purpose of investigating immune cell migration, early detection of disease, and clinically relevant therapy combining radiation with novel drugs. My training as a doctorate candidate and during my brief post-doctorate appointment in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Oxford University UK has equipped me with a deep understanding of the molecularly targeted in vivo imaging with the use of contrast agents for early detection of metastasis. As a physics undergraduate and graduate student at the Department of Physics, Liverpool University UK, I have developed deep knowledge in all types of radiation and their implication in the entire spectrum of imaging modalities and medical radiation treatment.
Clinical Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Lynn Million specializes in the treatment of cancer. She has practiced Radiation Oncology for more than 30 years. Dr. Million has a special interest in the treatment of sarcoma’s of soft tissue, bone and cartilage in children, young adolescents and adults.
Everett J. Moding, MD, PhD
Clinical Instructor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory performs translational research using analysis of human samples to identify critical mediators of treatment resistance that can be validated in preclinical models and targeted to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapy.
