2016 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: undeclared
Supported by: The Rose Hills Foundation
Mentor: Edward Graves, Radiation Oncology

Aileen is developing methods to treat small animal models of disease with clinically relevant radiotherapy. Her project will engineer treatment planning approaches for the X-RAD SmART system to determine the optimal set of radiation beams to produce a radiation dose to treat a specific target while sparing other tissues.  The software she will develop will allow researchers to study radiotherapies matching those given to human patients.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2016:
