    Emil Schueler

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiation Physics

    Bio Dr. Schüler is a medical physicist currently doing a postdoc at the department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University.

    His personal areas of emphasis are in the fields of radiation biology and physics, and he did his Ph.D. in the study of the biological effects of normal tissue following radiopharmaceutical administration. From his Ph.D. studies, Dr. Schüler acquired a special interest for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy and immunotherapy, as well as for molecular imaging techniques, and has since then also developed a specific interest in the challenging issues of more effective cancer treatments through novel treatment modalities and techniques.

    He is currently working within the PHASER project, a large multicenter project involving Stanford University, Stanford hospital, and SLAC, with the goal of developing a radically new medical linear accelerator design, based on very high-energy electron beams that can be steered electromagnetically to deliver extremely rapid and highly conformal radiation therapy in a compact and affordable design compared to other particle therapy technologies.

    Dr. Schüler received his Master’s of Science and Ph.D. from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. He is a licensed Medical Physicist by the Swedish National Board of Health. He is currently a Postdoc at the department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University.

  • Debanti Sengupta

    Debanti Sengupta

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiation Physics

    Bio Dr. Sengupta completed her PhD from Stanford University's Department of Chemistry in 2012, where she studied protein-based biomaterials for muscle tissue engineering applications. Thereafter, she completed a short bioengineering postdoc at UC Berkeley, where she studied vascular stem cell differentiation. She is currently a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University’s School of Medicine in the Radiation Oncology department. Her current research is focused on the characterization of breast cancer cells using radioluminescence microscopy.
