James Lamb
Member, Physics & Biology in Medicine GPB Home Area

Dr. Lamb is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology. He received his Ph.D. in experimental high-energy particle physics from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2009. After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Lamb was a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University in Saint Louis. His research interests include respiratory-correlated imaging (4D-PET/4D-CT), lung cancer functional imaging, Monte Carlo simulation, and data mining. His clinical interests include episcleral plaque radiotherapy for ocular melanoma, automation of patient-specific quality-control, and the use of cutting-edge software technologies in radiation oncology.
