Jeffrey V. Siebers, PhD, DABMP, FAAPM
Professor and Director of Radiological Physics
Department of Radiation Oncology

University of Virginia

Biosketch

Dr. Siebers received an MS in Health Physics and PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin. Following his degree, he went to Loma Linda Medical Center as a Senior Physicist, then Assistant Professor to develop hospital-based proton radiation therapy.  In 1997, he joined the Department of Radiation Oncology at Virginia Commonwealth University, where as the founding Director of the VCU Medical Physics Graduate Program he gained the rank of full professor.  In 2013, he became the Director of Radiological Physics at the University of Virginia where he leads the clinical and translational research medical physics activities.

 

Dr. Siebers mentored >10 PhD students and has published over 90 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He was certified by the American Board of Medical Physicists in 1999 and elected to be a fellow in the AAPM in 2008. Dr. Siebers has served the as a Reviewer for numerous journals and as an Associate Editor for Medical Physics Journal. Dr. Siebers has been active in the AAPM by being an instructor at AAPM Summer Schools and for annual meeting CE courses, and has participated on several Task Groups as well as the Calibration Laboratory Accreditation Committee.  He has also been active professionally as a consultant to the ICRU, IAEA, and NCI.

 

Dr. Siebers research focuses on improving the therapeutic ratio of radiation therapy (1) by improving the accuracy and conformity of radiation dose delivery and (2) by accurately evaluating the radiation dose delivered to a patient throughout their course of radiation therapy. His research group is active in robust intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) optimization techniques, use of decision support systems in radiation therapy, automated treatment planning, and during-treatment dose verification.  Monte Carlo radiation transport simulations which model radiation interactions with the treatment delivery device, the patient, and radiation detectors are used extensively in his research.
