Aaron Grossberg MD, PhD wins RSNA Resident Research Award

Aaron Grossberg, MD PhD '13

Aaron Grossberg, MD, PhD (OHSU class of 2013) was recently awarded the 2016 Radiologic Society of North America Resident Research grant in support of his research evaluating the neural and molecular mechanisms of brain radiation-induced fatigue. The most common toxicity of brain radiation, fatigue is associated with severely decreased quality of life. The proposed work seeks to identify novel approaches to combat fatigue and improve the therapeutic value of brain radiation.

Dr. Grossberg completed his graduate training in the laboratory of Daniel Marks, MD, PhD, where he studied the role of neuroinflammation in the pathogenesis of cachexia and sickness-associated lethargy. His graduate work was supported by an F30 National Research Service Award and resulted in three first-author publications. After graduation Dr. Grossberg completed his internship in internal medicine at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, OR, before starting his residency training in radiation oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He continues to pursue a career in basic and translational research during residency through the American Board of Radiology Holman Research Pathway.
