Christopher Ryan Kelsey

Professor of Radiation Oncology


I specialize in the treatment of hematologic and thoracic malignancies. I have a special research interest in optimizing radiation therapy in lymphomas and leukemias, particularly consolidation radiation therapy in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and total body irradiation in the setting of allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Other academic interests include cardiac toxicity after radiation therapy for lung cancer and optimizing stereotactic body radiation therapy for stage I non-small cell lung cancer.
