Biography

Professional Background

Dr. Haoming (Carl) Qiu is a radiation oncologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center seeing patients at both Wilmot Cancer Center in Rochester and Sands Cancer Center in Canandaigua. Dr. Qiu received his medical education at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD and completed his residency in radiation oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Qiu brings a high level of technical expertise along with a friendly and optimistic attitude in caring for his patients.

Dr. Qiu also provides Lutathera (lutetium Lu 177 dotatate) PRRT (Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy) for patients with neuroendocrine tumors. If you are interested in a consultation, please have your doctor call our office for a referral. (585) 275-5625.

Research

Dr. Qiu's research is focused on the use of radiation therapy in the treatment of gastrointestinal and lung cancers with a special focus on the use of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) to deliver ablative doses of radiation with high levels of precision and conformality.. Dr. Qiu also directs the palliative radiation service at URMC, providing treatments aimed at alleviating symptoms for patients with advanced cancers

Dr. Qiu is the author of several peer reviewed articles and has presented his research at numerous national and international meetings in oncology.

Clinical Trials

Randomized Phase II/III Trial of Consolidation Radiation + Immunotherapy for ES-SCLC: RAPTOR Trial

Lead Researcher: Haoming Qiu

This phase II/III trial compares the effect of adding radiation therapy to the usual maintenance therapy with atezolizumab versus atezolizumab alone in patients who have already received atezolizumab plus chemotherapy for the treatment of small cell lung cancer that has spread outside of the lung or to other parts of the body (extensive stage). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving radiation therapy in addition to atezolizumab may extend the time without extensive small cell lung cancer growing or spreading compared to atezolizumab alone.

A Randomized Phase II Study De-Intensified ChemoRadiation for Early-Stage Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (DECREASE)

Lead Researcher: Haoming Qiu

This phase II trial studies how well lower-dose chemotherapy plus radiation (chemoradiation) therapy works in comparison to standard-dose chemoradiation in treating patients with early-stage anal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as mitomycin, fluorouracil, and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. This study may help doctors find out if lower-dose chemoradiation is as effective and has fewer side effects than standard-dose chemoradiation, which is the usual approach for treatment of this cancer type.
