Prof. Tae Suk Suh
Professor Suh is a professor of Medical Physics at Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, director in “Research institute of Biomedical Engineering” and “Advanced Research Center for Medical Physics” at the Catholic University of Korea. He obtained BS in nuclear engineering from Seoul National University of Korea and received MS and PH.D in medical physics from the University of Florida, USA.
Professor Suh’s career has spanned more than 40 years, a period which has witnessed huge advances in radiosurgery hardware and planning systems. He has contributed greatly towards the development of radiosurgery optimization techniques. he was the first to undertake flattening filter free(FFF) beam-based radiosurgery in a clinical setting. He also pioneered many other technologies, including the development of the radiation treatment planning system and 3T active shield magnetic resonance imaging.
As Secretary General of AFOMP during 9 years since 2003, he has been doing a lot of job in promoting the development of medical physics on a global basis. As President of AFOMP, he provided an effective solid platform for closer collaboration and mutual support amongst the medical physics organizations in the AFOMP. he has been working as a chair of publication committee of IOMP for 6 years. He also has worked as IMPCB Record and Registey Committee(RRC) chair.
Professor Suh received awards from IOMP and AFOMP; outstanding contribution over the last 50years( 2013), IDMP(2020), Kiyonari Inamura memorial AFOMP Orator(2021) etc. Dr. Suh published over 300 peer-reviewed papers and more than 1300 proceedings.
For his contribution as Co-Chair, Organizing Committee, 10th IUPESM World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering 2006, held in Seoul, South Korea.
