rapy. Fraass and colleagues also created the first radiation oncology clinical dose escalation trials using conformal therapy in 1987, as well as doing pioneering work in computer-controlled treatment delivery. Fraass continues his efforts to improve patient safety.

"It is an honor to join the elite group of past Coolidge award recipients," said Fraass. "The innovations our group developed have changed the field of radiation oncology, and have improved the cancer treatment for a great many patients. These improvements were only possible due to the teamwork of a dedicated collaboration of medical physicists, physicians, computer scientists, therapists and engineers, and I'm honored to represent all these people in accepting the award."

Fraass has been principal investigator of many National Cancer Institute grants, including the NCI-funded program project grant "Optimization of High Dose Conformal Therapy," which was funded from 1993 to 2011 and has authored more than 205 publications. Fraass serves as co-chair of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine Research Committee, the National Radiation Oncology Registry, the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise-Radiation Oncology effort and the Radiation Oncology Safety Stakeholders Initiative. He is a fellow of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, the American Society of Radiation Oncology and the American College of Radiology. In 2011, Fraass was named professor emeritus of the University of Michigan, where he served as director of the Radiation Oncology Physics Division from 1984 to 2011.
