Biography:
Robert J. Griffin, PhD, is a Professor of radiation and cancer biology in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences with over 20 years of experience in peer-reviewed research. Much of his work has been studying the interactions of normal and tumor microvasculature with tumor cells, blood flow, hypoxia and the general role of the tumor microenvironment in driving metabolism and proliferation. Exploiting aspects of the tumor microenvironment to improve response to radiation, thermal treatment, or chemotherapy while maintaining a beneficial therapeutic ratio is the ultimate goal of studies in his research group. He has acted as President and program chair for the Society for Thermal Medicine, which has an emphasis on nanotechnology and radiosensitization using a variety of modalities. He is active on the program committee for the ASTRO refresher course and the Radiation Research society as well as on the annual meeting and scientific and educational program development committee for ASTRO. Currently, he is also associate senior editor for biology for the Red journal as well as radiation therapy section editor for the journal Technology in Cancer Research and Treatment.
