About Justin Jordan, MD, MPH

Dr. Jordan earned his bachelor's degree in biology from Texas Christian University, then his MD from the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. During that time he performed basic science and translational research on brain tumor immunology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.  He then completed his neurology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, where he served as chief resident.  He trained in the neuro-oncology fellowship at the joint program of Massachusetts General Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women's Hospital.  In his second year of fellowship, he concentrated on the neurofibromatoses and allied disorders, and he simultaneously completed a Masters of Public Health degree program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He joined the clinical faculty of the Pappas Center for Neuro-Oncology and the Family Center for Neurofibromatosis in February 2015, and became Clinical Director of the MGH Brain Tumor Center in July 2017 and additionally became the Director of the Family Center for Neurofibromatosis in 2020.

Dr. Jordan's clinical interests are in primary nervous system tumors and in neurofibromatosis 1, neurofibromatosis 2, and schwannomatosis.  His research interests are in the genetics of tumor development within these tumor predisposition syndromes, as well as therapeutic clinical trials for malignant brain tumors.  He is also involved in clinical process improvement for brain tumor care at MGH, and contributes to patient care quality measurement development within the American Academy of Neurology and the Society for Neuro-Oncology.
