James Manalad is a research assistant in the Medical Physics Unit at McGill University and a member of the Kildea lab’s Neutron-Induced Carcinogenic Effects (NICE) group. He is currently finishing his MSc project on the simulation of indirect DNA damage due to ionizing radiation with the goal of elucidating the underlying biophysical mechanisms that lead to neutron-induced mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. His previous works for the Kildea lab include a statistical analysis of radiomic features from CT images of prostate cancer patients, and the development of a webpage displaying a summary report of various patient data to be used by clinicians.
