Stav is a Physicist in training (B.Sc. in Physics with Medical Applications) with expertise in radiation detection (M.Sc. in Radiometrics: Instrumentation and Modelling) and radiation biology (M.Sc. in Radiation Biology). He joined the Graves lab after completing his Ph.D. in Radiation Biology at the University of Oxford, at the Experimental Neuroimaging Group. During his work at Oxford he focused on the development of novel molecular contrast agents for in vivo imaging methods, aiming to monitor angiogenesis in solid tumours or early detection of pulmonary micrometastasis. During his research at Stanford, Stav aims to expand his expertise in Radiation Therapy and more specifically on the effect of radiation on the tumour microenvironment and tumour cell migration.
