Cutting edge research

Service and Community

Our students formed the "T2 Stars" team to participate in Angels Among Us 5K race each spring, raising thousands of research dollars for Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke. You can learn more about our outreach events on the Community page.

Wagenaar Fellowships Established

Thanks to the generosity of Gamma Medica, we established the Douglas Wagenaar Fellowships and Scholarships, which will support students engaged in breast imaging research. See news section for more details. 

Making an Impact

Our students and alumni are the stars of this latest video. In their own words, they tell us why they were drawn to the exciting field of medical physics, and why they chose to come to Duke. This film was made entirely in-house by members of our program. (The previous video "Like a Family" featuring program director Dr. Dobbins is now on the Admissions page.)
