Dr. Chia-ho Hua earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he studied radionuclide tomographic imaging. He received postdoctoral and clinical training in therapeutic medical physics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York before being certified by the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Medical Physics. Dr. Hua joined the faculty at St. Jude in 2005 and is currently a full member and the Director of Medical Physics Research in Radiation Oncology. His research aims to improve proton therapy targeting accuracy, advanced imaging for precision radiation oncology, and predictive modeling for tumor response and radiation late effects in children. Dr. Hua is also the Physics Committee Chair of the Children’s Oncology Group Radiation Oncology Discipline and the steering committee member of the Pediatric Normal Tissue Effects in the Clinic (PENTEC) international consortium. In 2023, Dr. Hua was elected as a Fellow of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (FAAPM).
