From the Director

This is an exciting time in cancer medicine, and I am privileged to share with you groundbreaking advances in radiation oncology and molecular radiation sciences.


'Mini-Brains' Are New Model for Brain Cancer

Tiny structures about the size of a fly’s eye provide a new futuristic opportunity to study pediatric brain cancers.


Using Data to Improve Patient Care

The era of precision or personalized cancer medicine is driven by data, and many experts believe that the solutions to a lot of the remaining cancer mysteries may be hidden within this data.


Novel Finding Improves Cancer Cell Death

An unusual observation by Hopkins scientists about how testosterone affects prostate cancer cells may lead to more effective radiation therapy in men with high-risk disease.


An Unexpected Cancer Target

“When we think about radiation therapy, it is high technology, but the complexity of cancer requires that we have a better understanding of the biology,” says Marikki Laiho, the Willard and Lillian Hackerman Professor of Radiation Oncology and Vice Chair of Research for the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences.


New Drug Improve Kill Effect of Radiation Therapy

Cancer cells are crafty—just ask clinician-scientist Phuoc Tran, M.D., Ph.D.. In his current research, he has seen how cancer co-opts an exquisite process of human development to undergo its most lethal transformation.


New Tool Delivers Prostate Cancer Destruction

The merging of two discoveries provides a novel way to deliver cell destruction to prostate cancer. At the center of the research are two things familiar only to scientists—aptamers and siRNA.


Combined Radiation/Immune Therapies

Experts from the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences are expanding evidence that shows targeted radiation stimulates an immune response against cancer.
