Eduardo G. Moros received a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona, 1990. His graduate work was on scanned focused ultrasound. After a year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Human Oncology Dept., he joined the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, where he served in the medical physics faculty, becoming an Associate Professor (tenured) in 1999 and a Professor in 2005. He was also the Head of the Research Physics Section (2001-05). In 2005 he joined the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences as Director of the Division of Radiation Physics. Currently, He is Chief of Medical Physics for the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Diagnostic Imaging (Radiology) at the Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Fl. Dr. Moros served as President of the Society for Thermal Medicine (2004-2005), Associate Editor for the journal Medical Physics (2000-2007), Radiation Research (2008-13), and the International Journal of Hyperthermia (2006-2009), and was a permanent member of the NIH Radiation Therapeutics and Biology Study Section (2002-05). He is currently an Associate Editor of the Journal of Clinical Applied Medical Physics since 2007. He is an active member in several scientific/professional societies: AAPM, ASTRO, RRS, STM and others. Dr. Moros is a diplomate of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiologic Physics. Dr. Moros' strength has been to collaborate with scientists and clinicians in the application of physics and engineering principles to facilitate biomedical research and promote translational studies. He has published more than 130 peer-reviewed articles and has been a principal investigator/co-investigator on multiple research grants from the National Institutes of Health, other federal agencies, and industry. He was a recipient of a NIH Challenge Grant in Health and Science Research (RC1) in 2009, the J. Eugene Robinson Award in 2013, and Fellow of the AAPM.
He is intrested to create physics and engineering models and systems for the scientific testing of biomedical hypothesis in vitro, in vivo, and in clinical trials.
