Meet Our Team
As one of the top academic medical centers in the country and the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in North Texas, we lead and participate in a number of clinical trials aimed at improving the outcomes of patients with cancer. The Department of Radiation Oncology enrolls approximately 200 new patients in clinical trials each year.
Clinical trials are critical in developing new therapies for cancer and can mean having access to new medication, groundbreaking research, and additional clinical care. Our clinical trials team is comprised of radiation oncologists, radiation biologists, clinical research coordinators, quality assurance coordinators, and clinical data specialists.
Please ask your physician if there are any new melanoma clinical trials.
Our patients share their stories and experiences within the Department of Radiation Oncology at UT Southwestern.
