Instructor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Physics
Bio Dr. Schüler is a medical physicist currently doing a postdoc at the department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University.
His personal areas of emphasis are in the fields of radiation biology and physics, and he did his Ph.D. in the study of the biological effects of normal tissue following radiopharmaceutical administration. From his Ph.D. studies, Dr. Schüler acquired a special interest for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy and immunotherapy, as well as for molecular imaging techniques, and has since then also developed a specific interest in the challenging issues of more effective cancer treatments through novel treatment modalities and techniques.
He is currently working within the PHASER project, a large multicenter project involving Stanford University, Stanford hospital, and SLAC, with the goal of developing a radically new medical linear accelerator design, based on very high-energy electron beams that can be steered electromagnetically to deliver extremely rapid and highly conformal radiation therapy in a compact and affordable design compared to other particle therapy technologies.
Dr. Schüler received his Master’s of Science and Ph.D. from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. He is a licensed Medical Physicist by the Swedish National Board of Health. He is currently a Postdoc at the department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University.

Professor of Radiation Oncology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The photochemistry and radiation chemistry of DNA, the genetic control and biochemical bases of the multiple pathways of DNA repair, and the roles of DNA repair processes in radiation and spontaneous mutagenesis. Over 190 papers have been published on these and related topics.
