1. Clinical Research
Advanced radiotherapy techniques intensity modulated radiotherapy; stereotactic radiotherapy using tomotherapy, cyberknife and autosegmentation; nasopharyngeal carcinoma, especially its relationship with the Epstein Barr virus and immunotherapy including T cell treatment; multimodality treatment that aims at improving control and minimising side effects; multimodality treatment of brain tumours, colorectal, oesophageal cancer, breast cancer, and thyroid cancer, and elucidation of related prognostic factors.
2. Identification and Characterisation of Cancer-Related Genes
Elucidation of the tumour pathogenesis and progression in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), colorectal cancer, oesophageal cancer, ovarian cancer, and lung cancer, through the characterization of isolated oncogenes or tumour suppressor genes with recently-developed techniques, such as next-generation sequencing analysis. Functional assays are used to study the roles of candidate genes in cancer development and progression.
3. Discovery and Validation of Candidate Genes in Nasopharyngeal and Oesophageal Cancers
