Randall Hawkins, MD, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Hawkins previously served as Program Chief of the Nuclear Medicine Section at UCSF from 1993-2009. He earned his MD from the University of California, Irvine in 1975, and completed a fellowship in Medical Physics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975. Dr. Hawkins completed a residency in Radiology from the University of Southern California Medical Center in 1979, a residency in Nuclear Medicine from UCLA in 1981, and a Chief residency in Nuclear Medicine from UCLA in 1981. He obtained his MS in Medical Physics from UCLA in 1981, followed by a PhD in Biomedical Physics from UCLA in 1985.
Dr. Hawkins’s research interests are focused on clinical and methodological developments and applications of PET, SPECT, and other imaging modalities in disease states such as cancer, selected work in pathologic, and physiologic investigations of the central nervous system, cardiovascular system and other organ systems. Dr. Hawkins performed the first successful quantitative kinetic PET imaging evaluation of mice. Others followed with the development of micro PET and micro PET/CT scanners, which is now a part of the imaging research environment.
Dr. Hawkins is the lead investigator of a project that was the first to use whole body PET clinical examinations. He has served as Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator for several NIH grants, and he has published 142 articles, 11 book chapter, with 4 significant publications.
