Special clinical interest in prostate, bladder, rectal, anal, gastrointestinal cancers, Dupuytren’s disease, Ledderhose disease and benign conditions.

Prof. Jarad Martin is a radiation oncologist with strong research interests. He sub-specialises in the multidisciplinary management of gastrointestinal tumours (including tumours of the rectum and anal canal) as well as genitourinary malignancies (including prostate and bladder cancers). A more recent interest is the use of low dose radiotherapy for conditions such as plantar fasciits, Dupuytren’s and Ledderhose diseases.

Jarad attends and contributes to the Newcastle multidisciplinary meetings discussing patients with all of these disease, and has a leading role in helping organise specialist education events in the Hunter region. His technical knowledge is well recognised in areas including intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), image guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT). Having worked in Victoria, Queensland and Canada prior to commencing practice in Newcastle, he is able to bring a broad perspective to his management of people with cancer.

Jarad has authored more than 100 peer reviewed publications, being awarded more than $12 Million in competitive research funding and has won awards in both Canada and Australasia recognising the quality of his research. He has held senior positions in several national bodies including the Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group, for whom he was the convenor for their 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting.
