Justin Durla Lathia

Dr. Lathia is an expert in brain tumor stem cells. He is co-director of the Cancer Stem Cell Conference in 2014 and 2016 with Huiping Liu. Dr. Lathia’s research has two main areas of focus: using in vivo imaging models to interrogate the tumor microenvironment and examining communication mechanisms used by cancer stem cells to promote their maintenance. His lab is focused on understanding cancer stem cells in real time, so they can be better eliminated by therapy and, thus, prevent tumors from forming, metastasizing, and becoming resistant to therapy.
