PHILADELPHIA (March 22, 2016) — Mohan Doss, PhD, MCCPM, one of the leading proponents of cancer prevention and treatment using low-dose radiation from Fox Chase Cancer Center, will receive the Outstanding Leadership Award in the field of dose-response on behalf of Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information at the 15th Annual International Conference of the International Dose-Response Society in Amherst, MA.
“I am honored to receive this award on behalf of Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information (SARI),” said Doss, one of the founding members of SARI, and associate professor and medical physicist at Fox Chase. “SARI has taken several initiatives to correct the misinformation about the health effects of low-dose radiation. We in SARI are pleased to receive this recognition of our efforts. Part of our mission at SARI is to help prevent unnecessary, radiation phobia-related deaths, morbidity, and injuries associated with distrust of radio-medical diagnostics/therapies.”
Doss obtained his MS and PhD degrees in physics from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh. After 10 years of post-doctoral research in the U.S. and Canada, he became a medical physicist in the Nuclear Medicine department of Regina General Hospital in Regina, Canada. In 2001, he joined the Diagnostic Imaging department of Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, where he is presently an associate professor. Doss has board certification in Nuclear Medicine Physics from the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine.
Doss also individually received the 2014 Outstanding Leadership Award in the field of dose-response from the International Dose-Response Society.
