Wilfred Ngwa, a global oncology researcher and medical physics expert who is developing technologies that integrate with radiation therapy to reduce cancer treatment times and costs, will join Rutgers Global Health Institute. Ngwa, who will become a Rutgers Presidential Faculty Scholar and a professor of global health at the institute in January, also will be appointed as a professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
The broad aim of Ngwa’s research and global collaboration is to increase access to cancer treatment and reduce health disparities, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. He leads a research group that is developing low-cost approaches and technologies that can substantially reduce treatment times and costs and that can be implemented in resource-poor settings.
