Slobodan Devic, PhD, FCCPM 
Investigator, Lady Davis Institute
Medical Physicist, Department of Radiation Oncology, Jewish General Hospital
Assistant Professor, Medical Physics Unit, McGill University

Dr. Devic obtained his Ph.D in Physics in 1997 at the University of Belgrade. He moved to the United States in 1998 and worked as a Research Associate in Radiation Oncology Physics at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis before moving to the Montreal General Hospital and McGill University in 2000. He assumed his current position at the Jewish General Hospital in 2008. He is a Fellow of the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine and his major research interest is radiochromic film dosimetry and its applications.

Major Research Activities
Dr. Devic’s research activities revolve around:

  • GafChromic film dosimetry;
  • Development of new treatment techniques for GI cancers;
  • PET/CT based biological target volume definition and implementation in treatment planning for lung and rectal carcinomas;
  • Incorporation of MRI simulation in the radiotherapy treatment planning process;
  • Intra-operative brachytherapy for breast caner patients.
