Tiffany Phillips contributes a high level of experience with her continued commitment to clinic, research and teaching. Early in her career she researched basic mechanisms of radiation responses of tumors cells, specifically aimed at determining stem cell-like properties. This research lead to a first in the field publication defining the stem cell population and radiation resistance in breast cancer. She continued to pursue research in radiation resistance in other tumor populations as well. She completed residency at Stanford University where she gained expertise in all aspects of clinical medical physics and published her research on ultrasound based image guidance for prostate cancer. Currently, as the lead brachytherapy physicist, she collaborates with several medical residents and radiation oncologists on clinical brachytherapy research projects. Additionally, her research focuses on the clinical utilization of novel 3D printing techniques for both brachytherapy and external beam applications.
