Mahler, Peter

Dr. Mahler is a clinical professor in the Department of Human Oncology. In addition to general radiation oncology, he has a strong interest in palliative care. He participates in inpatient care with the palliative care team at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics. This provides residents the opportunity for additional exposure to and training in palliative care.

Dr. Mahler also has an interest in normal tissue damage from radiation because it is the dose-limiting factor in radiation therapy. He and his team are in the process of developing an animal model of normal tissue damage to better understand the basic biology of damage progression, which could aid the development of drugs and techniques to minimize the damage.
