Mark Oldham
Professor of Radiation Oncology

Dr Oldham is Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology (primary) and Biomedical Engineering (Secondary). He is the Director of the Optical Biophysics and 3D Dosimetry Lab. The lab has received NIH R01 funding to develop optical imaging techniques for 3D dosimetry. We are also developing a new optical imaging technique for high-resolution 3D imaging of vascular networks and gene expression in unsectioned tissue samples. A range of applications are being explored through collaborations with the Dept of Radiobiology (Prof Mark Dewhirst).  In addition to these efforts, the Lab is heavily involved in several research projects aimed at modifying radiation treatments in order to stimulate a long term anti-cancer immune response: radiation and immunotherapy. 

Dr Oldham is the Director of the Radiation Therapy Track of the Duke Medical Physics MS/PhD program.
