讲座人简历:

K.S. Clifford Chao, M.D., a pre-eminent expert in the use of image-guided targeted radiotherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for the treatment of cancers, has been named Chu H. Chang endowed Professor and Chair of Columbia University Medical Center as well as the Combined Program in Radiation Oncology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Chao comes to New York from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where who is a professor and director of Image-Guided Therapy of Radiation Oncology. Before joining the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in 2002, Dr. Chao was an associate professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He received his medical degree from Kaohsiung Medical School in Taiwan. His postgraduate training included a residency and fellowship in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and a fellowship in the Department of Surgery in the Cancer Research Institute in Tokyo, Japan.
In addition to serving as the Principle Investigator of multiple NIH research grants and publishing more than 100 peer-reviewed papers, he is the author of two widely read textbook, “Management Decision of Radiation Oncology” and “Practical Essentials of IMRT”. Dr. Chao’s research focus includes combining the use of positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) images to direct customized radiation treatment plans tailored specifically to individual patients and the molecular characteristics of each tumor. His laboratory recently discovered a critical cancer stem cell control mechanism that responsible for tumor resistance and recurrence after chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Due to his pioneering work in the molecular image-guided therapy, the Radiological Society of North America selected him as the youngest recipient of the prestigious Annual Oration Award in 2005. Dr.Chao’s research focus is on leading edge technology in microrobotics and cancer stem cell-based radiotherapy.
