Ongoing clinical research projects involve evaluating genetic predictors of tumor response to radiation (e.g. tumor mutations in EGFR and KRAS genes) and germline single nucleotide polymorphisms that predict risk of radiation toxicity. Additional projects incorporate functional imaging (e.g. MRI perfusion scans) to identify radiation-induced injury and tumor response. Specific sub-projects in the frame work of these studies would be identified in discussion with interested students and could entail either more short term or more long term studies.
