Jun Deng, Ph.D., is an associate professor at the Department of Therapeutic Radiology of Yale University School of Medicine and an ABR board certified medical physicist at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Dr. Deng obtained his Ph.D. from University of Virginia in 1998 and finished his postdoctoral fellowship at Department of Radiation Oncology of Stanford University in 2001. Dr. Deng has been serving on the Editorial Board of 14 peer-reviewed journals, been on the study section of DOD, ASTRO and RSNA for grant review since 2005, and serving as scientific reviewer for European Science Foundation and Dutch Cancer Society since 2015. Dr. Deng has received numerous honors and awards such as Fellow of Institute of Physics in 2004, AAPM Medical Physics Travel Grant in 2008, ASTRO IGRT Symposium Travel Grant in 2009, AAPM-IPEM Medical Physics Travel Grant in 2011, and Fellow of AAPM in 2013. Dr. Deng's research has been focused on medical imaging, organ dose, and cancer risk assessment in radiation oncology and biomedical engineering. In 2013 his group developed CT Gently, the world's first iPhone App that can be used to estimate organ doses and associated cancer risks from CT and CBCT scans. Recently, Dr. Deng has been funded by a NIH R01 grant to develop a personal organ dose archive (PODA), a big data approach to developing an early warning system by actively tracking a large amount of organ dose data for individual patients in order to improve patient safety in radiation therapy.
Lei Xing, Ph.D., is currently the Jacob Haimson Professor of Medical Physics and Director of Medical Physics Division of Radiation Oncology Department at Stanford University. He also holds affiliate faculty positions in Departments of Electric Engineering (courtesy), Medical Informatics, Bio-X and Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford. Dr. Xing obtained his PhD in Physics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1992 and received his Medical Physics training at the University of Chicago. He has been a member of the Radiation Oncology faculty at Stanford since 1997. He is also an affiliated faculty member in Stanford's Department of Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Informatics Program, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, and Bio-X program. His research has been focused on inverse treatment planning, tomographic image reconstruction, CT, optical and PET imaging instrumentations, image guided interventions, nanomedicine, and applications of molecular imaging in radiation oncology. Dr. Xing is an author on more than 250 peerreviewed publications, a co-inventor on many issued and pending patents, and a co-investigator or principal investigator on numerous NIH, DOD, NSF, ACS grants and projects from other funding agencies and corporates. He and his lab members have received numerous awards from ACS, AAPM, ASTRO, WMIC, and RSNA in the past decade. Dr. Xing is on the editorial boards of a number of journals in radiation physics and medical imaging, and is recipient of numerous awards, including the American Cancer Society Research Scholar Award, The Whitaker Foundation Grant Award, and a Max Planck Institute Fellowship.
