Meet Dr. Jiang

Wen Jiang, M.D., Ph.D., focuses on treating cancer sites of the central nervous system with radiation. His dream of becoming an oncologist was driven by his desire to find a cure for cancer. His interest in the field of radiation oncology, however, originated during his postdoctoral fellowship at Mass General Hospital.

“Given my training as an engineer, I was just fascinated by the technological tools available at the doctors' disposal and felt that there were unlimited opportunities to develop exciting new technologies to treat cancer,” he says.

As an Assistant Professor in UT Southwestern’s Department of Radiation Oncology, Dr. Jiang’s main focus will be on the treatment of CNS benign and malignant tumors.

Dr. Jiang’s clinical research is focused on the understanding of the body’s immune system and how it interacts with cancer cells, and how these cells develop the abilities to evade immune detection.
