Kimberly L. Johung, MD, PhD, a Yale Medicine radiation oncologist, is the director of the Gastrointestinal Radiotherapy Program for Yale Cancer Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital. She is also the medical director for radiation oncology services at the Veteran Affairs Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven, Conn.

In these roles, she treats a variety of cancers, including esophageal, gastric, pancreatic, liver, biliary, rectal, anal, and lung tumors. “What inspires me,” says Dr. Johung, “is that my job entails not only helping patients access the best care for their cancer diagnosis, but also trying to provide hope—whether it’s for a cure, a period of disease stability, alleviation of a symptom, or improved outcomes for cancer patients in the future.”

Dr. Johung is also an associate professor of therapeutic radiology at Yale School of Medicine. Her research interests include defining molecular markers, using retrospective studies, clinical trials, and translational studies, to guide treatment decisions and improve outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal malignancies.

She is a panel member for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (Esophageal and Gastric Cancers) and is a member of the American Society for Radiation Oncology.
