Min Yu, M.D., Ph.D.
Department of Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine
Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center
Dr. Min Yu's lab focuses on the mechanisms of cancer metastasis. By studying the circulating tumor cells (CTCs) isolated from breast cancer patients and mouse models, and using approaches of molecular and cellular biology, single cell tracing and modeling in animals, they are gaining a better understanding of the cancer stem cell properties in CTCs and obtaining novel insights on how to target these rare populations.
