Jeffrey Bradley, MD, the S. Lee Kling Professor of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine, has been named one of 23 fellows this year by the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). He will be recognized at ASTRO’s 59th annual meeting, to be held Sept. 24-27 in San Diego.
ASTRO is an international society of physicians, nurses, biologists, physicists, radiation therapists and others who specialize in treating patients with radiation therapies. Only 292 of the society’s more than 10,000 members have been named fellows. Among other requirements for consideration, candidates must have made a significant contribution to the field of radiation oncology.
“The impact that this group of dedicated individuals has had on the field of radiation oncology is immense,” said ASTRO Chair David C. Beyer, MD. “On behalf of ASTRO, I commend and thank these 23 outstanding physicians and medical physicists for their far-reaching contributions over the years — through research and patient care — to our specialty and the fight against cancer.”
Bradley is the inaugural director of the S. Lee Kling Proton Therapy Center at Siteman Cancer Center, the only proton therapy center in Missouri and the surrounding region, which he helped open in 2013.
