Peter Maxim, PhDProfessor and Vice Chair

Peter Maxim is a medical physicist and biophysicist in Radiation Oncology at the University of California, Irvine. His vision is the development of advanced, curative radiation therapy for all types and stages of malignancies and new indications, such as cardiovascular illnesses, that will lead to increased survival worldwide from top cancer and non-cancer causes of mortality. His areas of emphasis are stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR), four-dimensional computed tomography (4D CT), and the development of novel and safe radiation therapy that addresses the major technical challenge of accurately and precisely treating moving targets and anatomy. Peter is active in the area of ultra-rapid FLASH radiation and the development of next-generation radiation technologies to deliver FLASH.

Peter received his Dipl. Phys. (M.Sc.) from the Technical University, Berlin, Germany, and his Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D.) from Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany. He is certified by the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiologic Physics. He is currently a Professor and Vice Chair for Medical Physics at the University of California, Irvine.
