Meet Dr. Vo

Dat Vo, M.D., Ph.D., a native of Fort Worth, joined the UT Southwestern faculty after completing his residency in radiation oncology at UT Southwestern.

His interests include post-transcriptional gene regulation, nucleic acid-based diagnostics and therapeutics, and clinical radiation oncology with a particular interest in head and neck cancer.

 “One of the most gratifying aspects of being a radiation oncologist is the relationships that I can cultivate with my patients," says Dr. Vo.

"Radiation therapy is a powerful treatment for cancer, but it is equally powerful to be there alongside my patients—helping to guide them through this tough time in their lives. Moreover, I have the opportunity to work and collaborate with many professionals, including nurses and dietitians, to give our patients the care and expertise they need. At UT Southwestern, we are fortunate to have great clinicians that are dedicated to head and neck cancer, offering exceptional cancer care and clinical trials investigating novel strategies and modalities for fighting cancer. Lastly, as a native of Fort Worth, it has been a special honor and privilege to come home and care for patients in Dallas and Fort Worth.”
