Dr. Hatim Husain, MD
Dr. Husain is a specialist in both lung cancer as well as brain tumors. A native of California, he received his medical oncology training at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD, and works diligently to better understand the molecular underpinnings of cancer to determine why it forms, how to treat cancer stem-like cells, and how best to prevent metastasis to different organs of the body including the brain. He is working to develop novel therapies to target cancer in the brain and to prevent resistance to established therapies. He is board certified in both internal medicine and medical oncology. He enjoys educating patients about their disease and any new technologies that may be available to combat cancer.
