Dr. Miften joined the faculty of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University Of Colorado (CU) School Of Medicine as a Professor and Chief Physicist in October 2008. Dr. Miften received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering in 1994 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Following graduation, he became a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University Michigan, where he was involved in research developing advanced dose calculation algorithms for 3-D conformal radiotherapy. In April 1996, Dr. Miften joined the Department of Radiation Oncology at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, as a Research Scientist. At Beaumont Dr. Miften shared clinical responsibilities and was involved in research on intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). He then joined CMS. Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri, as a Medical Physicist where he was involved in developing software for radiation treatment planning. In November 2000, he joined the faculty at Duke University Medical School and became involved in clinical research and development of IMRT and dose-response modeling. Dr. Miften left Duke in Feb 2005, where he was an Associate Professor, to join the West Penn Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh as a Chief Physicist, with a faculty appointment as an Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology at Drexel University College of Medicine. In Pittsburgh, he oversaw the clinical and research activities of a large group of physicists who provided service support to a network of 8 clinics in the Western Pennsylvania region and Eastern Ohio. At CU, he oversees the physics and dosimetry group. His current responsibilities involve clinical service, research, teaching and administration. His current research interests include SBRT, IGRT, IMRT, and outcome modeling. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for the Journals of Medical Physics and Clinical Applied Medical Physics. He is also serving as a chair and a member of many scientific and education committees nationally.
