He has assembled one of the largest and most complex databases of lung radiotherapy data in the world.

Moros, a medical physicist, is also a senior member of the Radiation Oncology Department. His career has focused on developing mathematical models, devices, techniques and systems to advance radiation oncology. He is working on advancing adaptive (personalized) radiation therapy using quantitative imaging analysis (radiomics) and artificial intelligence (machine learning) to gain biological/functional information from daily medical images.

Drs. Dilling and Moros are part of an elite group of physicians and medical physicists who are being recognized this year for their far-reaching contributions to the field of radiation oncology and their progress in advancing cancer research, education and patient care,” said Laura A. Dawson, M.D., FASTRO, chair of the ASTRO Board of Directors.

Awarded annually since 2006, the ASTRO Fellows program recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to radiation oncology through research, education, patient care and/or service to the field.
