Liyong Lin, PhD, FAAPM, DABR, is Associate Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine. An ABR board certified medical physicist, Dr. Lin's expertise includes commissioning, quality assurance, optimization and Monte Carlo characterization of pencil beam scanning proton therapy systems.

Dr. Lin is a member of the Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Lin received his PhD in Medical Physics from University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then completed a two year clinical postdoc at University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute.


Dr. Lin's current research interest is in:

  • developing Monte Carlo proton dose calculation platforms for open collaboration, teaming with peer institutions, AAPM/NRG and industry to provide access to independent validation of proton planning and delivery,
  • developing Monte Carlo based integrated biological optimization (dose rate and LET) to enable highest quality care, especially proton SBRT & FLASH,
  • and quality assurance of Monte Carlo dose calculation, optimization and image guidance proton therapy (IGPT).
