Biography

Professional Background

Dr. Webster earned his doctoral degree in biophysics from the University of California, San Diego. He went on to complete is residency training at UT Southwestern. Afterwards, he worked at the University of Iowa before joining the University of Rochester team.

Research

Dr. Webster has a strong interest in improving the use of clinical technology. He earned his PhD working on novel brachytherapy applicators using a technique called "Dynamic Modulated Brachytherapy." He now is focusing on external beam radiation and the developments which can be made in SRS and SBRT treatments.
