Biography Mohammad K. Khan, MD, PhD specializes in the treatment of melanoma, lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, and skin cancers. Dr. Khan received his MD from the University of Tennessee, Memphis and completed his residency training in radiation oncology at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute.

Prior to medical school, Dr. Khan received two BS degrees, one in Nuclear Engineering and one in Biology with a minor in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. Both degrees were awarded with Summa Cum Laude distinction. He then completed his MS, and PhD degrees in Nuclear Engineering with emphasis on health and medical physics from the University of Tennessee. His graduate research focused on the use of innovative imaging technologies, such as PET and MRI, to improve radiation treatment planning for emerging cancer therapeutics such as boron neutron capture therapy for patients with malignant brain cancer.

During his residency training, he received several academic accolades including the Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award for Outstanding Radiological Research, the Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative Research Grant to fund a prospective phase I prostate cancer image guided radiotherapy (IGRT) study, American College of Radiation Oncology Travel Award, American Brachytherapy Society Fellowship Award, and the American Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology Translation and Imaging Symposium Travel Award.

Dr. Khan continues to be actively engaged in a wide variety of cancer related research including patient outcome studies, the development of prospective phase I/phase II clinical trials, and engineering new mathematics and physics solutions to improving existing technologies such as IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy) and IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy).

Dr. Khan has collectively authored over 60 abstracts, manuscripts, and book chapters. He has also presented at national and international conferences and is a member of the American Board of Radiology (ABR), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO), American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO), and the American Brachytherpay Society (ABS).
