Overview

Special clinical interests in prostate, breast, lung, gastrointestinal, lymphoma, CNS, stereotactic radiation therapy and prostate brachytherapy.

Michael is an honours graduate of Monash University Medical School. He trained as a radiation oncology registrar at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and spent his fellowship year overseas at the Royal Marsden Hospital, United Kingdom. He returned to Australia and worked as a staff specialist at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in head and neck and gastrointestinal cancers. He has been working with GenesisCare since 2009 as a general oncologist, with focus on breast, prostate, gastrointestinal and  lung cancer.

Awards received

  • Varian prize 2005: For his research project in conformal radiation therapy in head and neck cancer and sparing of salivary glands in 2005 in his time as a registrar.
  • American Society of Clinical Oncologists Annual Meeting Merit Award 2007 for research in PSA kinetics in patients under active surveillance prostate cancer.

Research interests

Research interests include: prostate cancer management, and he is a primary investigator of a trial assessing the role of PSMA PET scans in post-prostatectomy radiotherapy.
