Dr Jeremy De Leon
BSc (Bioinformatics), M.B.B.S (Honours), FRANZCR, Radiation Oncologist
Special clinical interests are upper GI, urogenital, lung, breast, head and neck and stereotactic radiation therapy.
Jeremy completed a Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics prior to graduating from a Bachelor of Medicine with Honours in 2006 from the University of Sydney. He completed his radiation oncology training at Liverpool, Campbelltown and Canberra Hospitals, followed by a Fellowship at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
Jeremy subsequently took up a staff specialist position at the Illawarra/ Shoalhaven Cancer Therapy Centres prior to joining GenesisCare St Vincent, Sydney as the Clinical/ Program Lead of the MRI Linac leading clinical implementation and protocol development.
Jeremy’s clinical interests are upper GI, urogenital, lung, breast, head and neck and stereotactic radiotherapy. Jeremy is the most experienced Radiation Oncologist in MRI Linac Treatments using the fully adaptive Adapt to Shape workflow in Australia, with the GenesisCare St Vincent team having treated the most patients using this technique. The GenesisCare St Vincent team has treated multiple sites using the MRI Linac including stereotactic prostate and metastasis (pancreas, adrenal, nodal and bone), bladder and prostate bed.
Jeremy is an active clinician researcher and investigator in international and national clinical trials. He has also collaborated with the University of Wollongong on PBMC signatures following radiotherapy and has authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals.
He has a strong interest in new treatment and imaging technologies to improve patient outcomes and is the Clinical Lead for the MRI Linac at St Vincents Darlinghurst.
Outside of work, Jeremy enjoys time with his family, which usually revolved around food.
