Dr. Larson has been a member of the UCSF faculty since 1986, leading to joint professorial appointments in the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Neurosurgery. He served as president of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, the Northern California Radiation Oncology Society, and the International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society, and has been recognized as one of America's top doctors every year since 1991.

S. Mert Ozyurek, 36 years old, is currently the President of Ozyurek A.S., the preferred supplier of Elekta Gamma Knife systems to hospitals in Turkey, and EMKA, LLC, an affiliate of Ozyurek A.S. in the United States.
