An active clinical trialist and researcher, Dr. Goyal's medical research focuses on improving the quality of care received by cancer patients, both by advancing the ways in which cancer is treated with radiation and by integrating data from epidemiological settings in cardiology and oncology to better inform treatment and survivorship issues among cardiology and cancer patients. He has also optimized the use of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), and proton beam therapy (PBT) in the management of cancer patients.

Dr. Goyal has published over 100 manuscripts and a dozen book chapters, including seminal publications in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Clinical Oncology, International Journal of Radiation Oncology*Biology*Physics and Cancer. He has received numerous grants, including funding from the American Lung Association and the Radiological Society of North America.

Clinical Trials

This phase II trial studies the side effects of chemotherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy in treating patients with low-risk HIV-associated anal cancer, and nivolumab after standard of care chemotherapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with high-risk HIV-associated anal…

This Phase III Trial evaluates whether breast conservation surgery and endocrine therapy results in a non-inferior rate of invasive or non-invasive ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) compared to breast conservation with breast radiation and endocrine therapy.
