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. She is involved in resident education and currently serves as the course director for Radiation Biology for Radiation Oncology Residents.
