John Adler
Accuray

Dr. John R. Adler, Jr., launched his first enterprise in 1987, when he invented the CyberKnife System, a robotic surgical tool that uses image-guided computer systems to eradicate tumors throughout the body. With highly concentrated amounts of radiation, the tool can noninvasively ablate tumors almost anywhere in the body. With this technology, Dr. Adler went on to found Accuray Incorporated in 1990. Nine years later, the FDA approved the usage of CyberKnife Systems for treatment of head, neck and upper spine tumors; today it is approved in Europe, Japan, Korea and the United States for use in treating tumors throughout the body.

Dr. Adler served as Accuray's Chief Executive Officer from 1999 to 2002, and as the Chief Medical Officer up until 2007. He founded the CyberKnife Society in 2002 and served as its President until 2009. Presently, Dr. Adler serves as a member of the Accuray Board of Directors.

Educated at Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Adler completed his residencies at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, both in Boston. He also completed a radiosurgery fellowship at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Today, Adler is the Dorothy and Thye King Chan Endowed Professor of Neurosurgery at Stanford Medical School.
