Dr. Joanna Phillips is a neuropathologist at UCSF Medical Center who helps diagnose neurologic disease through the examination of central nervous system tissue. As an academic neuropathologist, her goal is to improve the treatment of brain tumors through research and patient care. Her research focuses on understanding how invading tumor cells interact with the components of the brain tumor microenvironment, and how these key interactions influence glioma development and response to therapy.
Phillips earned a medical degree and Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. She completed a pathology residency at the University of Washington in Seattle, followed by a fellowship in neuropathology at UCSF. Phillips is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Association of Neuropathologists, American Association for Cancer Research and Glycobiology Research and Training Program. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery and Department of Pathology in the Division of Neuropathology.
