Mark Oldham
Professor of Radiation Oncology

Dr Oldham is the Director of the Duke Medical Physics MS/PhD Graduate Program.

He is Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology, and Director of the Optical Biophysics and 3D Dosimetry Lab. The lab has received NIH R01 funding to develop optical imaging techniques for 3D dosimetry.  He has patented and published on several novel radiation treatment techniques (including XPACT and RECA - Radiotherapy Enhanced by Cherenkov photo-Activation) with exiting potential to invoke systemic anti-cancer immunogenic response.  A phase I clinical trial of XPACT is underway.  The lab has pioneered novel pre-clinical treatment capabilities including mini-beam grids, and ultra-high-resolution IMRT.  The lab has also developed novel optical imaging techniques for high-resolution 3D imaging of vascular networks and fluorescent gene expression in un-sectioned tissue samples.
