Dr. Stojadinovic’s research is primarily focused on the development of a small animal irradiator system.  Small animal irradiation platforms are designed for scientific testing of biomedical hypotheses in vitro (cell), as well as to facilitate radiobiological experiments for tumor and healthy tissue response to radiation in vivo (live animals). This is an essential tool for evaluating animal cancer models, with the ultimate goal to provide novel scenarios for clinical protocols administrated in human cancer treatments. 


 Dr. Stojadinovic is a coordinator of the Physics of Radiation Therapy and Technology course for the Radiation Therapist Training Program in the department of Health Care Sciences. Additionally, Dr. Stojadinovic teaches selected topics in radiation physics in the Radiation Oncology Medical Residency Program.


Dr. Stojadinovic is a licensed medical physicist in the state of Texas. Dr. Stojadinovic specialty is brachytherapy and Gamma Knife service and general clinical medical physicist duties in the Department of Radiation Oncology.
