Dr. Park's research efforts are directed at better understanding the pathogenesis of brain tumors in order to develop more effective treatment strategies for patients. In addition to glioma/glioblastoma, he also investigates other types of brain tumors such as meningioma and chordoma. A particular area of interest involves ongoing work on how intratumoral hypoxia (low oxygen) alters cellular behavior.

Dr. Park received his medical degree from Loma Linda University and completed his neurology residency at the University of Chicago, where he was selected by the faculty to serve as Chief Resident. He then trained in clinical neuro-oncology and performed research on paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center with Dr. Jerome B. Posner. This was followed by five years as a Research Fellow at the National Institutes of Health. He has served on the faculties of the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Virginia. Dr. Park provides care for patients with brain tumors and investigates tumor biology with focus on intratumoral hypoxia. He is a recipient of the Merit Award and the Career Development Award from ASCO.
