Fang-Fang Yin, Ph.D.

Gustavo Montana Distinguished Professor of Radiation Oncology

Dr. Fang-Fang Yin is a professor and Division Chief for Radiation Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology. An internationally recognized expert in advanced radiation treatment techniques, he has developed image-guided techniques and machine-learning methodology to enhance and secure delivery of intensity-modulated and image-guided radiation therapy, stereotactic body radiation therapy and radiosurgery for radiation treatment of cancers; he is considered a pioneer in developing techniques for radiosurgery of metastatic and primary spinal diseases. He is an active member in developing professional physics practice guidelines for clinical use of these treatment techniques. Over the last three decades, his basic medical physics and clinical translational research yielded over 330 publications and 5 US patents. He was one of the founding leaders for the Duke Medical Physics Graduate Program, the founder of Duke Kunshan University Medical Physics Graduate Program and the founder of Duke Therapy Physics Residency Program. He has trained over 60 graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, clinical medical physics residents and junior faculty, some of whom have become leaders in the field. He was elected as the Fellow of both the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiation Oncology.
