Pictured: Maria Chan

I am the Chief Physicist at our regional site in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. I am responsible for all radiation physics activities at this site, including quality assurance, radiation calibration, treatment planning, development of treatment protocols, implementation of advanced treatment techniques, and clinical physics consultations.

My current research interest is in dosimetry for advanced delivery techniques. I have published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and am the lead author for a large number of these. I have served in numerous task groups, work groups, and committees in both the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) including Chair of the Subcommittee of Practice Guidelines of AAPM and member of the Guidelines Subcommittee of ASTRO.

I received a PhD in Medical Physics from the Medical College of Ohio in 1995 and was certified by the American Board of Medical Physics and the American Board of Radiology. I joined the faculty of Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1999.
