My name is Maryam Rahman, MD, and I am a neurosurgeon specializing in the treatment of brain and spinal tumors with a focus on novel techniques, including laser interstitial thermotherapy, fluorescence-guided surgery, immunotherapy/vaccine therapy and awake cortical mapping during surgery.

I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and came to UF for medical school in 2001, where I completed my neurosurgical residency and neuro-oncology fellowship, and earned a master of science in clinical investigation. Following my residency, I completed a surgical neuro-oncology fellowship at Johns Hopkins.

In addition to taking care of patients, I am dedicated to discovering better treatments for brain tumors. As a member of the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy, I collaborate with highly specialized neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists and researchers to provide progressive treatment options for patients.

My research laboratory is focused on identifying novel immunotherapy approaches to overcome resistance in patients with brain cancer, and my translational research is actively being tested in human clinical trials.

I am highly involved in the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and I have served as president of the Florida Neurological Society.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, meditating, reading leadership development books and watching Rocky movies. I am also a former trombone player.
