Grace Tang , PhD

I am a board-certified assistant attending physicist in the Radiation Dosimetry section of the Department of Medical Physics. I earned my PhD in radiation physics from University College London, specializing in volumetric-modulated arc therapy. I joined the Department of Medical Physics after graduating from MSK’s postdoctoral fellowship and residency program in 2012.

My responsibilities include quality assurance (QA) of our radiation therapy treatment units, and the development and implementation of new QA techniques. I am also involved in commissioning new machinery and software integral to treatment planning for patients. In addition to my clinical duties, I devote time to teaching and mentoring medical physics residents.

Through my research, I continually work to find ways to improve treatment efficiency and accuracy, and am particularly focused on enhancing real-time motion-adaptive radiation therapy for prostate, lung, and gastrointestinal diseases.
