Clinical interests in gastrointestinal (GI), breast, prostate, and lung cancers.
Dr Marcus Foo graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2000 and trained in radiation oncology at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. He then undertook a Clinical and Research Fellowship at the BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver, Canada. His clinical interests included gastro-intestinal (GI), breast, and genito-urinary oncology. At this time he was also principal and co-investigator in research projects in anal cancer and prostate cancer plus a prospective phase II trial about radiation therapy techniques for multiple brain metastases.
He subsequently returned to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne as a consultant radiation oncologist in the GI/Sarcoma team, prior to joining GenesisCare in 2014. He consults at the GenesisCare, Frankston and Berwick centres.
Marcus has a clinical research interest in gastro-intestinal cancers, and has published in international and national peer-reviewed journals. He has further interests in types of radiation therapy technologies such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and image guided radiation therapy (IGRT).
