Bio :

Dr. Fuller joins the faculty in April of 2018 as a Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at the Bay Area Cancer Center in Coos Bay Oregon. Among other responsibilities, he will lead the cranial and body stereotactic radiation programs at Bay Area Hospital. He joins us from Colorado where he served as Medical Director Radiation Oncology and North Colorado Medical Center from 2010 to 2017. At this former post he was responsible for implementation a number of new treatment programs including high-dose rate brachytherapy for prostate, breast cancer and skin cancer, prone breast radiotherapy and prone pelvic IMRT. Dr. Fuller's research interest include: stereotactic radiation;the role of tumor hypoxia in regulating histone modifications;mitotic signaling pathways;modulation of DNA repair to affect tumor responses to radiation;and characterization of circulating tumor cells.
