Angiotropism of human melanoma cells in a murine model of brain melanoma. GFP human melanoma cells (green) spreading along the external/abluminal surfaces of vessels (red). Angiotropism, i.e. the presence of tumor cells closely apposed to the abluminal vascular surfaces, has been shown to be a marker for extravascular migratory metastasis.

NANTHIA SUTHANA

Introducing the BRI's New Member

NANTHIA SUTHANA, Ph.D, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR-IN-RESIDENCE, DEPARTMENT OF NEUROSURGERY

Her research focus is on the neural basis of human learning and memory with a specific interest in how the brain forms and retrieves memories for facts and everyday events, and how this process may be facilitated through invasive and non-invasive surgical methodologies.

Dr. Suthana completed her Ph.D in Neuroscience at UCLA in the laboratory of Dr. Susan Bookheimer in collaboration with Dr. Barbara Knowlton, where she studied human medial temporal involvement during episodic memory formation. As a graduate student, she was twice the recipient of the UCLA Brain Research Institute Travel Award, Society for Neuroscience, and received the UCLA Jeffrey L. Hanson Award for Distinguished Service.
