Bio

Dr. Makrigiorgos received his PhD in medical physics from the University of Leeds, UK, in 1984 and his postdoctoral training in radiation biology from Harvard Medical School. Since 1990, he has been a member of the Physics Division of the Department of Radiation Therapy, Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center. He currently directs the biophysics radiation research effort and serves as the Chief of the Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics of the Department of Radiation Oncology. His laboratory develops technologies for DNA analysis and detection of cancer DNA biomarkers in blood, tumor tissue and bodily fluids.

Technologies for novel Radiation Biophysics and Mutational Profiling of Tumors

Medical Physics and Biophysics Research

We are developing novel physics and biological approaches that utilize the combined powers of functional imaging, image-guided radiation therapy, nano-technology and molecularly targeted biological agents, to improve and personalize cancer treatment.

Molecular Biophysics Research

We are developing new technologies for molecular profiling of human tumors. In particular, we have devised novel methods for detecting DNA mutations and methylation in clinical samples. We are also using these new technologies to improve detection of cancer DNA biomarkers in human blood, for the purpose of early detection of cancer or monitoring of the progress of radio/chemotherapy. For example, we developed new whole-genome amplification methodologies that enhance identification of plasma-circulating DNA of tumor origin. Ongoing clinical studies are evaluating these biomarkers in radiation oncology patients.
