Description of Research Expertise

image-guided radiation therapy

Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Lin is an Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania and Associate Member of the Abramson Cancer Center and has been involved in clinical and translational research protocols in gynecologic and breast radiation oncology. Dr Lin’s research program focuses on identifying imaging (MRI/PET) and tissue biomarkers of toxicity and poor response to therapy. Additionally, she is interested in integrating proton therapy into the therapeutic management of patients with breast and gynecologic cancers. Dr. Lin has been the PI or co-investigator of several institutional studies examining MRI for brachytherapy treatment planning, qualify of life after radiotherapy, and the use of DCE MRI and novel hypoxia tracers (18F EF5) in patients with gynecologic or breast malignancies.
