Justin Mikell, PhD

Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology


  • BS, Engineering; BS, Computer Science: University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2002)
  • PhD, Medical Physics: University of Texas at Houston Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and UT, MD Anderson Cancer Center (2015)
  • Residency, Medical Physics: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2018)


Dr. Mikell started in Radiation Oncology after his undergraduate studies in Engineering, Physics, and Computer Science. After working as a physics assistant/dosimetrist and becoming board certified in dosimetry, he began doctoral studies at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. As a graduate student at MD Anderson, Dr. Mikell worked with Acuros for both brachytherapy and external beam. His thesis was in applying the parent code of Acuros to unsealed sources, with a clinical application focused on Y90 microspheres. After obtaining his doctorate, he enrolled in a residency at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Upon finishing residency, he accepted a faculty position at Michigan, where he was part of the brachytherapy and machine QA  teams. He continued to collaborate with nuclear medicine colleagues at Michigan with his research interests in combination radiotherapy, quantitative emission imaging, and absorbed dose calculations for both microspheres and unsealed sources. Dr. Mikell joined Washington University School of Medicine in 2022.
