Justin Roper, PhD, joined the Department of Radiation Oncology in 2012. Dr. Roper is board certified in Therapeutic Medical Physics by the American Board of Radiology. He is adjunct faculty in the Nuclear and Radiological Engineering and Medical Physics Programs at the Georgia Institute of Technology and is involved in teaching physician and physics residents at Emory.
In 2010, Dr. Roper received his PhD from Duke University where he investigated single photon emission computed tomography for biological imaging onboard radiation therapy machines. This research was supported in part by a predoctoral award from the US Department of Defense and a traineeship from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. He completed residency training in the CAMPEP accredited medical physics residency at Duke University Medical Center. He holds a BS in Physics from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Dr. Roper is interested in the use of imaging to guide and evaluate radiation therapy, and, in particular, functional and molecular imaging because of the potential to design treatments based on the biology of cancer and normal tissues.
