George Mikhaeel is a Professor of Radiation Oncology at King’s College London and Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust since 2001. He specialises in the treatment of lymphoma with both chemotherapy and radiotherapy and has extensive experience in advanced radiotherapy techniques for haematological malignancies.

Professor Mikhaeel’s research has resulted in new ways of treating lymphoma patients with radiotherapy, harnessing the benefits of advances in radiotherapy technology and advances in imaging. An example of new treatments is combining an innovative arc technique and deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) with image-guided delivery of treatment to improve the accuracy of targeting radiation and reduce dose to healthy tissues.

His clinical practice is focused only on haematological malignancies which are less common and require a high level of specialisation and substantial clinical experience, having practised in this field for more 20 years. Professor Mikhaeel has lectured in more than 15 countries and has numerous publications in the field including four influential international guidelines.

He is a founding member of the International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG) and a member of its steering and executive committees.
