- Dedman Family Scholar in Clinical Care
- Prostate Cancer
- Genitourinary Cancer
Dr. Meng earned his medical degree and doctoral degree in cell and molecular biology at New York University, where he also completed a residency in urology. He received advanced training in urologic oncology through a fellowship at UT Southwestern.
He joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2021.
Dr. Meng's clinical interests include prostate cancer and focal therapy for prostate cancer, kidney cancer, testicular cancer, and bladder cancer.
The author of numerous scholarly articles and presentations, Dr. Meng’s research focuses on better understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie the immune response in order to determine which prostate cancer patients are best managed by focal therapy.
He also researches ways to improve diagnosis and treatment of kidney and prostate cancer, the metabolomics of genitourinary malignancies, and focal or partial treatment choices for localized prostate cancer.
