Kan Ding, M.D., is Associate Professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center. She specializes in epilepsy and seizure disorders.
Dr. Ding earned her medical degree at Peking Union Medical College in China. She completed a residency in Neurology and advanced training in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy through fellowships at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.
Dr. Ding’s research focuses on the impact of regular physical activity in patients with epilepsy and traumatic brain injury. She also actively collaborates with the Critical Care EEG Monitoring Research Consortium (CCEMRC) to improve our understanding of the clinical significance of long-term EEG monitoring in critically ill patients.
