Dr. D'Amico is the Professor and Chief of Genitourinary Radiation Oncology and MR Guided Prostate Brachytherapy Programs at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital.

He is an internationally known expert in the treatment of prostate cancer and has defined combined modality staging, which is used to select patients with localized prostate cancer for specific surgical or radiotheraputic treatment options. He is the principal investigator of several federally funded grants that support his investigations in Image Guided Therapy for early stage prostate cancer, drug development for advanced stage prostate cancer, and clinical trials that are aimed at defining future management strategies for men with prostate cancer.

Dr. Anthony D'Amico is currently developing and testing optical and molecular imaging technology, which holds great promise for significantly improving the way in which prostate cancer is detected and treated. In conjunction with this work, he is currently leading the effort towards the creation of a Prostate Cancer Institute in the Harvard Medical Complex.

Dr. D'Amico holds two undergraduate and three graduate degrees: a B.S. in physics, a B.S. in nuclear engineering, M.S. in nuclear engineering, and a Ph.D. in radiation physics, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He completed his residency in the department of radiation oncology of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he served as chief resident during his final year. He has over 150 peer reviewed original publications and editorials, and his teaching contributions include his position as Co-director of the Harvard Combined Residency in Radiation Oncology, Associate Master of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Society, editorial board member of 6 scientific journals, and editor of four textbooks on the management of prostate cancer.
