Dr. Renuka Malik specializes in image-guided radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and other advanced procedures that have helped cancer patients live longer and more productive lives in recent years.

She was part of a research project at the University of Chicago that uncovered molecular markers that could predict the spread of certain cancers.
