Profile Summary

Brian W. Pogue, Ph.D. is the MacLean Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth in Hanover, New Hampshire USA, and is Adjunct Professor of Surgery in the Geisel School of Medicine. His Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are in Physics, with Ph.D. in Medical/Nuclear Physics from McMaster University, Canada. He was Research Fellow at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Mass. General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. At Dartmouth since 1996, he works in the general area of Optics in Medicine, with a focus on novel imaging systems for characterizing cancer and tracking therapy. He was Dean of Graduate Studies at Dartmouth from 2008-2012 and is now Director of MS and PhD Programs in Engineering Science & Medical Physics. He has published over 350 peer-reviewed papers and >400 conference papers in cancer therapy, surgery, medicine, medical oncology, and radiotherapy. His research is funded by the National Cancer Institute through two Program Project grants as well as several individual R01 grants. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Biomedical Optics published by SPIE and is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA), the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineers (AIMBE) and the International Society of Optics & Photonics (SPIE). He recently founded the startup company DoseOptics LLC, making the world’s first camera to image radiotherapy dose delivery as it happens.
