Our gynae-oncology research team aims to carry out bench to bedside cancer research. Current areas of basic research concentration on are epidemiology of human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer, genetic/epigenetic alterations in cancer development and progression, cancer stem cells (CSC), cancer cell metabolism, onco-immunology, interactions between cancer cells and the tumour microenvironment in tumorigenesis, chemo-resistance, and metastasis of gynaecological malignancies. These studies hope to provide a scientific basis for developing novel diagnostic tools and therapeutic interventions for improving treatment outcome of gynaecological cancer patients.
