Dr. Robert Stewart to be appointed as an Associate Editor for the British Journal of Radiology
Congratulations to Dr. Rob Stewart for his appointment as an Associate Editor for the British Journal of Radiology (BJR) in the field of Computational Radiation Biology.
BJR is the international research journal of the British Institute of Radiology and is the oldest scientific journal in the field of radiology and related sciences. Dating back to 1896, BJR’s history is radiology’s history, and the journal has featured eminent landmark papers, such as the first description of CT “Computerized transverse axial tomography” by Godfrey Hounsfield in 1973.
Dr. Stewart is Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology and a Medical Physicist with a national and international reputation for radiobiological modeling across multiple scales in the biological hierarchy. He is best known for developing Monte Carlo models to simulate the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of various types of radiation used for the treatment of tumors (including low-energy electrons, protons, neutrons and other high linear-energy-transfer particles). At the University of Washington, we have unique particle therapy capabilities for patients and this requires the use of particle RBE models to individualize and improve the treatment of patients with protons and fast neutrons.
