Dr. Rajendran has a PhD in molecular mechanisms and cell biology of hormone dependent cancers such as breast cancer and prostate cancer. He has also conducted research in the areas of prostate organ motion, proton radiation therapy and radiation therapy for breast and thoracic tumors. He has written numerous papers and made presentation nationally and internationally. When asked why he chose radiation oncology, he states, "I began my love of cancer biology by studying cancer cells and I learned in medical training the art of caring for the entire patient. I strive to continually gain clinical knowledge to properly stage, plan, and treat my patients based on clinical evidence. I want to give my patients a clear understanding of how and why I am treating them. To really help a patient, it is critical to understand the science behind their treatment and the art of delivering care."
