Research in both radiation oncology and diagnostic radiology benefit from the program’s presence in the clinical environment. The MR research group works at the UNM Mind Research Network in close collaboration with the physicians on new MR imaging and spectroscopy techniques.
L. Ketai, M.D.
Research project looking at the effects of various therapies on the inflammation of blood vessels of the lung.
G. Hatch M.D.
He is a forensic radiologist and spends much of his time working at the Center for Forensic Imaging within the State of New Mexico Office of Medical Investigator. He has two grants studying the use of imaging in forensic medicine.
Gary W. Cooper, Ph.D.
Radiation detection and measurements particularly as applied to the measurement of fusion plasmas and energetic particles generated in z-pinch plasmas.
Anil K. Prinja, Ph.D.
Mathematical modeling, analysis, and simulation of high energy charged particle transport using Monte Carlo and deterministic finite element methods; closure-and nonclosure-based approaches for particle transport in random media; fundamental transport theory.
Shaung (Sean) Luan, Ph.D.
Research interests include (1) computational medicine and biomedical engineering, (2) algorithms design, analysis and implementation, and (3) computational geometry. Computational medicine is an emerging and promising inter-disciplinary field and serves as a bridge between biology, medical physics and medical applications. Current research emphasizes on the design and development of efficient and effective computer algorithms and software for radiation oncology.
