Daniel Ma, M.D. (CTSA ’15), Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, received an Interventional-Treatment Clinical Trial Award from the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center, in partnership with Mayo Clinic Research, for the project “A Randomized Evaluation of Machine-Learning-Assisted Radiation Treatment Planning Versus Standard Radiation Treatment Planning in Breast, Prostate, and Head and Neck Cancer.” The award supports cancer trials designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention in real-life clinical practice conditions and encourages the participation of people from underrepresented minority groups. Supported trials will use telemedicine and mobile and local health care professionals to reduce the need for participants to travel to meet with researchers. Dr. Ma is a professor of radiation oncology in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science.
