Special clinical interest in breast cancer, melanoma, liver malignancy, upper GI malignancy.

Dr Tim (Wei) Wang is a senior radiation oncologist with subspecialty interest including the management of breast cancer, melanoma, liver tumours and upper GI cancer. He has particular interest in advanced radiation treatment technique including deep inspiratory breath hold radiotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), and the interaction of radiation therapy with modern systemic therapies such as targeted therapy and immune check point inhibitors. He is the trial chairperson of several ongoing collaborative group clinical trials. Dr Wang is a Clinical Senior Lecturer for the University of Sydney since 2011.
