First MS class graduates
(2007-05-01) The program graduated its first class of MS students this year. From the class of 16 students admitted in 2005, over 2/3 have already been employed by established clinical facilities around the country or admitted to our doctoral program to continue their medical physics studies at Duke. To our first ever class, congratulations and good luck!

Ronald Jaszczak receives lifetime achievement award
(2006-11-03) Congratulations to Ronald Jaszczak, professor of radiology and BME, and faculty of the Medical Physics Graduate Program, who received the 2006 Edward J. Hoffman Medical Imaging Scientist Award from IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society for his "important and sustained lifetime contributions to nuclear and medical imaging sciences, particularly single-photon emission computed tomography." The Award was presented to Dr. Jaszczak on November 3rd in San Diego at the 2006 IEEE Nuclear Sciences Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference. Dr. Jaszczak also received the 2000 Paul C. Aebersold Award from the Society of Nuclear Medicine for his outstanding contributions in basic science applied to Nuclear Medicine, and, in 2004, he received the Outstanding Alumni Award from the Physics Department of the School of Liberal Arts Sciences at the University of Florida.
Adam Wax receives teaching award
(2006-10-05) Adam Wax, assistant professor of biomedical engineering and faculty of our program, received the Capers and Marion McDonald Award for Excellence in Teaching and Research. He and other faculty award recipients were recognized at last week's Founder's Day Convocation for the university. Dr. Wax's research interests [ext. link] include optical spectroscopy for early cancer detection, novel microscopy and interferometry techniques.
Open House 2006 scheduled for Oct.27
