Research Projects

Dr. Jae Won Jung his group’s research focus is on the inventive field of medical and health physics.  They use various techniques and skills including Monte Carlo simulation, advanced imaging and dosimetry, and radiation risk analysis to understand how radiation affects humans.  Projects involve 4-D dose reconstruction during radiotherapy, secondary cancer risk assessment after radiation treatment, heart structure modeling, tumor tracking in Cyberknife, and microsphere brachytherapy. There are mainly graduate-level projects in the lab and numerous students have presented their research with Dr. Won in the local meetings, international conferences, or peer-reviewed journals.
