Mission Statement

The Ding Lab, directed by Dr. Kai Ding, is to advance the radiotherapy for cancer care through invention and discovery. Our R&D starts from computational modeling and simulation. By validating on preclinical models, we translate our technology to the care of cancer patients. The Ding Lab is affiliated with Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences in Baltimore, Maryland, Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation, and Johns Hopkins National Proton Center in Washington DC. We have extensive collaborations with faculties from Departments of Radiology, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science.
