She was the principal investigator for multiple clinical trials, published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals, and was invited to speak at many professional conferences, editorial boards, and advisory boards. She is highly respected by her peers for continuously providing education to medical students, residents, and fellows, and has received many awards for her excellent patient care.

Dr. Zhang was recruited by the physician team at Virginia Oncology Associates due in part to her cutting-edge knowledge and expertise in treating pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and other cancer types.

Dr. Zhang believes in personalized medicine and is passionate about curing cancer. A good quality of life for cancer patients and their individual needs are her highest priorities.
