Zhong Su, PhD

Dr. Su is an assistant professor in the UF Department of Radiation Oncology. He is assistant director of the Medical Physics Residency Program and the lead physicist of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) program at the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute. After obtaining his doctorate from UF, Dr. Su joined the University of Michigan, Department of Radiation Oncology Imaging Group as a post-doctoral fellow conducting research on flat-panel imaging in radiation therapy as well as mammography, radiography and fluoroscopy. His research expertise is in flat-panel imaging physics and imager performance analysis and its applications. After postdoctoral fellowship, Dr. Su joined the UF Department of Radiation Oncology as a medical physics resident. During his residency, he obtained radiation oncology physics training in external beam radiation therapy, brachytherapy and special clinical procedures. He also performed clinical physics oriented researches. Prior to joining UF Health Proton Therapy Institute, Dr. Su worked as Assistant Professor in Radiation Oncology Physics at Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Su is active in clinical research. His current research interest includes image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), IMRT, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and tumor motion interplay in proton therapy. Dr. Su is a member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiation Oncology.
