Research in Radiobiology is centered on the molecular biology of living cells. Most effort is on DNA repair, recombination, and mutagenesis. In addition, there is research on the role of oncogenes in cancer, RNA processing in eukaryotes and radiobiology topics related to cancer therapy.

In 2013, the Yale Department of Therapeutic Radiology was at the very top of all medical school based radiation oncology programs in the United States for NIH funding. The department has a large number of competitive research grants from the NIH and other funding agencies. Basic research in radiobiology, discovery of underlying mechanisms of radiation response, and DNA repair are high priorities for the department of therapeutic radiology at Yale.
