Dr. Paryani completed part of his clinical training at the Stanford Cancer Institute in Palo Alto, California, one of the pioneer programs in utilizing radiation as part of the treatment of lymphoma. His Uncle, Dr. Shyam Paryani, authorized one of the seminal papers on the use of radiation therapy in Hodgkin’s and Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a paper which is still taught to students and residents in radiation oncology today.
