Eva Mercedes Galvan, M.D.
Dr. Eva Galvan is a radiation oncologist who specializes in treating tumors of the central nervous system (brain and spine) and pediatric cancers. She uses contemporary radiation techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and surface imaging (for patient positioning on the treatment machine) to improve treatment outcomes and minimize long-term side effects of radiation therapy. In addition to her clinical responsibilities, Dr. Galvan has participated extensively in both clinical and basic / translational research and has presented her findings at multiple national conferences. Her current translational lab research is related to improving outcomes for patients with glioblastoma multiforme by optimizing a combination of immunotherapy, radiation therapy, and novel anti-cancer drugs. In 2020, she was awarded the Texas Radiological Society J. Mitchell, George, and Stephen Brown Award for Resident Excellence in Radiation Oncology. She is involved in resident education and currently serves as the course director for Radiation Biology for Radiation Oncology Residents.
