Edward Pan, MD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology. He also holds joint appointments in the Simmons Cancer Center and Department of Neurological Surgery. He is the Medical Director of the Annette G. Strauss Center for Neuro-Oncology and the Fellowship Director for the UTSW Neuro-Oncology Fellowship Program.
Dr. Pan received his BA and MD degrees from Boston University Medical Center. He completed his Internship in Transitional Medicine at The Cambridge Hospital and his neurology residency at the Tufts University Residency Program. He then completed his clinical and research Neuro-Oncology Fellowships at the University of California San Francisco. He previously worked as Neuro-Oncology faculty at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute in Orlando, Florida and then Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida before starting at UTSW in 2013.
Dr. Pan's research interests include experimental therapeutic trials for newly-diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma, anaplastic gliomas, and low-grade gliomas. Other areas of research include brain metastases, neoplastic meningitis, and neuro-oncology quality of life trials. In addition to Phase I, II, and III therapeutic clinical trials, he has research interests in translational research involving Phase 0 studies of novel targeted experimental therapeutics evaluating treatment blood-brain barrier penetration and intratumoral drug levels as well as novel experimental imaging modalities, such as 2-Hydroxyglutarate (2-HG) MR Spectroscopy, 3D MRI imaging, and arterial spin labeling (ASL) MRI.
His research efforts involve serving as Principal Investigator (PI) of numerous investigator-initiated trials, multicenter pharmacology-sponsored clinical trials, and consortium studies for cooperative groups such as the Adult Brain Tumor Consortium (ABTC), Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, and NRG Oncology group. He is also the site PI at UTSW for the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC) group.
