Billy W. Loo, Jr., MD, PhD, DABR
Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical specialty is radiation treatment of thoracic cancers.
My research is on developing next-generation ultra-rapid radiation therapy technology (PHASER) and studying the radiobiological effects of FLASH treatment.
My clinical research is on advanced 4-D image-guided radiation therapy and stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR), and functional and metabolic imaging and imaging biomarkers.
Andrew Philip Martella
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Martella is a fellowship-trained radiation oncologist and a clinical assistant professor of radiation oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
His clinical interests include gynecologic, breast, thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and central nervous system cancers. His experience encompasses the full range of radiotherapy techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), CyberKnife radiosurgery, eye plaque brachytherapy, and prostate and gynecologic high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy.
Dr. Martella is dedicated to improving the quality of care and the patient experience. He deeply values a close relationship with his patients and their loved ones. He feels that each patient experiences healthcare in a unique and individual way. By recognizing and responding to those individual needs Dr. Martella provides a truly patient-centered experience. He has helped conduct research into noninvasive deep brain stimulation and chromosomal topography,and published on the topic of treating rectal cancer without radiation. He also was the primary contributing author of chapters in the book First Aid for the United States Medical Licensing Examination.
Dr. Martella has delivered presentations at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. Topics include chemotherapy and radiotherapy in endometrial cancer.
Among the honors for scholarship that Dr. Martella has received, he graduated first in his class at Duke University School of Medicine. He was also elected during medical school into Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
Dr. Martella?s community service has included a position on the board of directors of Camp Good Days and Special Times, a nonprofit organization that provides services for children who have cancer, have a parent or sibling with cancer, or have lost a parent or sibling to the disease. He has served on several leadership roles and has a deep dedication to furthering diversity and inclusion throughout the healthcare system.
Clinical Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Lynn Million specializes in the treatment of cancer. She has practiced Radiation Oncology for more than 30 years. Dr. Million has a special interest in the treatment of sarcoma?s of soft tissue, bone and cartilage in children, young adolescents and adults.
Everett J. Moding, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory performs translational research using analysis of human samples to identify critical mediators of treatment resistance that can be validated in preclinical models and targeted to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapy.
Prithvi Mruthyunjaya, MD, MHS
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr Mruthyunjaya has maintained a broad research interest with publications in both ocular oncology and retinal diseases.
His focus is on multi-modal imaging of ocular tumors and understanding imaging clues that may predict vision loss after ocular radiation therapy. He coordinates multi-center research on the role of genetic testing and outcomes of treatments of ocular melanoma.
In the field of retinal diseases, his interests are in intra-operative imaging to enhance surgical accuracy.
Scott G. Soltys, MD
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical and research interests focus on the development of new radiation techniques involving stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant and benign tumors of the brain and spine, as well as functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia.
Lucas Kas Vitzthum, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Vitzthum is a radiation oncologist and clinical assistant professor of radiation oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He specializes in the treatment of gastrointestinal and thoracic cancers. He also has a clinical and research interest in oligometastatic cancer, which is cancer that has metastasized to a limited number of sites beyond its origin.
He began his career in biomedical engineering and is passionate about integrating new technologies to advance patient care.
Dr. Vitzthum delivers treatment personalized to each patient?s condition, overall health, and goals. He believes clear communication between doctor and patient is vital to help patients make informed care decisions.
His research interests include clinical trial development, survivorship, and predictive modeling to personalize patient treatment. He is especially interested in pursuing research that can address unmet clinical needs.
Dr. Vitzthum has received research support through the Radiological Society of North America, the American Society of Clinical Oncology?s Conquer Cancer Foundation, and the UCSD Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute. His work has appeared in International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Annals of Oncology, JAMA Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, and other publications.
He is a member of the American College of Radiation Oncology, American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, and Radiologic Society of North America.
Dr. Vitzthum is also interested in improving access to high-quality cancer care for under-served populations domestically and abroad.
Clinical Associate Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Zaky is a board certified Radiation Oncologist. She received a Bachelor?s of Science in Biomedical/Electrical Engineering at Marquette University. She worked in research and development as an Engineer, and eventually received a Masters of Science in Immunology from Albany Medical College. Her research thesis focused on a novel therapy to treat hormone-receptor positive breast cancer. She continued to study breast cancer with her research during her Radiation Oncology residency; she integrated her research in the laboratory with her clinical research in triple-negative breast cancer. Since completing residency, she has worked as a general radiation oncologist, and her special interests include breast cancer, skin cancer, CNS tumors and stereotactic radiotherapy.
