Biography

Dr. Theodore Lawrence received a joint medical and doctoral degree (cell biology) from the Cornell University Medical College/Rockefellar University in New York. After completing internal medicine residency training at Stanford University Medical Center, he received specialty training at the National Cancer Institute, completing both a fellowship in medical oncology and a residency in radiation oncology. Dr. Lawrence is board certified in all three areas. He joined the faculty of the University of Michigan in 1987 and currently serves as professor and chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology. Dr. Lawrence's clinical interests center on combining intensity modulated and 3-D conformal radiotherapy with new chemotherapeutic and radiosensitizing agents in the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. His laboratory research interests include chemotherapeutic and molecularly targeted agents as radiosensitizers, and gene therapy.
