The American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology is pleased to announce its 2006 Gold Medal winners. Richard Hoppe, M.D., and C. Clifton Ling, Ph.D., will receive their awards on Tuesday, November 7, during ASTRO's 48th Annual Meeting, being held in Philadelphia November 5-9, 2006.

"I'm very proud of our two Gold Medalists; they represent the best in teaching, research and clinical care in radiation oncology. Their selection is a testament to the high caliber of physicians, scientists and researchers who are members of our Society."

Dr. Hoppe is the chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology and the Henry S. Kaplan Harry Lebeson Professor of Cancer Biology at Stanford University. Since graduating from Cornell University Medical College in New York, he has dedicated much of his professional career to training the next generation of physician-scientists in radiation oncology. Dr. Hoppe has been a strong supporter of translational research in physics and radiobiology and he has been instrumental in his department receiving one of the highest levels of NIH funding of any radiation oncology department in the United States. Under Dr. Hoppe's leadership, Stanford was one of the first institutions in the country to implement intensity modulated radiation therapy techniques into clinical protocols and clinical use. Dr. Hoppe has also played a major role in the development of the successful Stanford programs for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease and other lymphomas as well as trials of total lymphoid irradiation to establish transplantation tolerance.
