UF Promotes Two Radiation Oncologists

Dr. Julie Bradley and Dr. Roi Dagan

By Theresa Edwards Makrush

Julie A. Bradley, MD, and Roi Dagan, MD, MS, have been promoted to the rank of associate professor by the UF College of Medicine. “This is a very well-deserved promotion for both of them that reflects their distinction in clinical accomplishments, research and education,” said Nancy Mendenhall, MD, UF Health Proton Therapy Institute medical director and UF Department of Radiation Oncology professor and associate chair.

Dr. Bradley specializes in breast cancer and pediatric cancers. She leads the breast cancer program at the Institute and is the principal investigator on multiple breast cancer clinical trials. Her research in the use of proton therapy for breast cancer has demonstrated its effectiveness in controlling the disease while reducing radiation to the heart and lungs.

Dr. Dagan specializes in head and neck cancers and eye cancers. He directs the head and neck program at the Institute and has presented his research at many international medical conferences. His patient outcomes studies established early evidence that proton therapy improves local control of advanced sinonasal cancers and reduces the loss of vision and other serious side effects.
