Research & Publications
Dr. Thomas Hayman has joined the Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center in Guilford as an Assistant Professor of Therapeutic Radiology. He received his medical degree from the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, and his PhD in Molecular Medicine as part of the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine/ National Institutes of Health Graduate Partnership Program mentored by Dr. Philip Tofilon. He completed his residency in Radiation Oncology at Yale New Haven Hospital. Dr. Hayman cares for patients with prostate, lung, head and neck, and GI cancers, among others. He is trained in stereotactic radiosurgery using Gamma Knife Icon, as well as IMRT for head and neck, central nervous system, prostate, thoracic, gastrointestinal, hematologic, and gynecologic malignancies, and SBRT lung, liver, pancreas, and spinal tumors.
During his PhD training and time as a Holman Research Pathway Fellow, Dr. Hayman focused his research on basic and translational radiation oncology with an emphasis on the discovery of determinants of cellular radiosensitivity. As such, the overarching theme of Dr. Hayman's laboratory is to understand mechanisms of resistance to DNA-damage with the goal of developing novel approaches to neutralize the adaptive responses with the ultimate goal of clinical translation.
