Mark Oldham, PhD

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. The second major research focus is to develop 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). Dr Oldham's other research interests include image-guided-radiation-therapy, including the study of appropriate margin definition, and applications of tomosynthesis.

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