A/Prof Sweet Ping Ng

Clinician Scientist, Tumour Targeting Lab

I am a consultant radiation oncologist specializing in head and neck, brain and upper gastrointestinal cancers such as esophagus, liver, and pancreas.

Along with a multidisciplinary team, we established the head and neck stereotactic radiation therapy program at the Department of Radiation Oncology, Austin Health.

My research focuses on the development and implementation of evidence-based adaptive, ‘precision oncologic therapy’ based on novel blood and imaging biomarkers (e.g. CT/ PET/ MRI). Using these biomarkers, I hope to improve risk stratification, enhance adaptive therapy techniques, and improve radiation dose targeting and treatment personalization to maximize treatment outcomes whilst minimizing treatment-related toxicities.
