Special clinical interest in breast, urological including prostate brachytherapy and lung malignancies; and palliative radiation therapy.

Dr Tran graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1998. She undertook her postgraduate training at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and at Adelaide Radiotherapy Centre/Flinders Medical Centre, gaining her specialist qualifications in Radiation Oncology in 2006.

Dr Tran works across all areas but with subspecialty interests in urological malignancies (in particular prostate cancer), breast and lung malignancies. She established the Prostate Low-Dose Rate Brachytherapy Program at Tennyson Centre and the Rectal Hydrogel Spacer program for patients undergoing prostate irradiation.

Oncology SA’s Research Committee was formed under Dr Tran’s leadership, encouraging participation of all craft groups and enabling a broad range of both investigator-initiated and externally sponsored clinical trials to be offered to patients.

Research interests

As Chair of the SA Research Committee for GenesisCare Oncology, Dr Tran aims to increase access to clinical trials for patients, while ensuring that all research undertaken at GenesisCare is compliant with Good Clinical Practice and the NHMRC National Statement for the Ethical Conduct of Research in Humans.
