Gregory Woodhead, MD, PhD


As an Interventional and Thoracic radiologist, I strive for: (1) Excellence in patient care via development of superior procedural skills and clinical imaging, (2) Excellence in teaching for medical student, resident, and fellow education, and (3) Excellence in translational research, in order to drive innovation and implement novel technologies/therapies into clinical practice. Prior to radiology residency and fellowship training, I completed the dual degree M.D., Ph.D. Medical Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University School of Medicine. My Ph.D. research focused on the role of β-catenin signaling in the regulation of cell proliferation during development and tumorigenesis. In collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Arizona, we are working on the development of novel nanoparticle based therapeutics to facilitate targeted tissue thermal ablation and intracellular delivery of chemotherapy. I endeavor to combine my interests in Interventional Radiology, Biomedical Engineering, and Molecular Imaging. In particular, I strive to play an active role in developing novel treatment strategies and potential therapeutics in the field of Interventional Oncology.
