Professor Weijun Fan is currently deputy director of Department of Minimally Invasive Interventional Therapy at Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center (SYSUCC), Guangzhou, China.  As the leader of the First Tumor Ablation Training Course of the Chinese Medical Doctor Association (CMDA), professor Fan has pioneered the Chinese Medical Doctor Association's tumor ablation training. So far, the Training Course has trained more than 5,000 ablation professionals for all provinces and municipalities across the country. As the leader of the tumor ablation training expert group, he participated in the organization of 29 sessions of ablation training, and organized the compilation of the first set of tumor ablation training materials of the CMDA, which has made great contributions to the cause of tumor ablation in China. Professor Fan Weijun edited the first monograph on microwave ablation of tumors called “Microwave Ablation Therapy for Tumors”, which laid the foundation for the popularization of tumor microwave ablation technology in China. Moreover, he organized the "Expert Consensus for Thermal Ablation for Primary and Metastatic Lung Tumors" and "Expert Consensus for Image-guided Adrenal Tumor Ablation Treatment".  

Professor Fan is currently the chairman of the ablation committee of the CMDA intervention branch; the leader of the tumor ablation treatment technology expert group of the CMDA; the candidate of the chairman of the professional committee member of the tumor ablation treatment of the CHINESE ANTI CANCER ASSOCIATION (CACA); Deputy Director of the Tumor Ablation Therapy Expert Committee of the Chinese Society of Clinical Oncology (CSCO); Chairman of the Respiratory Intervention Special Committee of the Interventional Group of the Chinese Society of Radiology (CSR); the candidate of the chairman of the Professional Committee of Tumor Minimally Invasive Therapy of Guangdong Anticancer Association. Besides, Professor Fan is the Chinese deputy Editor-in-Chief of “Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics”. And he also is the editorial board member of "Interventional Radiology" and "Anatomy and Clinical Medicine". At present, he has published fifties of papers.

The minimally invasive interventional therapy ofvarieties of Solid Tumor, especially Hepatocellular Carcinoma and MalignantMelanoma. 

More than fifty papers were published in core Journals in China, and more than twenty SCI papers were published on multiple magazines, such as Cancer, Aging, Cancer Immunology Immunotherapy, International Journal of Hyperthermia, AJR, and JVIR.
