I am a Professor of Medicine at Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Senior Principal Investigator at Cancer Science Institute of Singapore, and Deputy Director (Research) at National University Cancer Institute of Singapore, NUHS. I am a member of >10 editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals, and I have over 720 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in high impact journals such as Nature, Science, Journal of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Journal of Clinical Investigation, and others. My laboratory has been constantly supported by NIH since 1979 and I have received other numerous federal and state research grants including the NMRC STaR Investigator Award. I have mentored about 200 post-docs and a similar number of students during my career. Most of the post-docs have continued in academic careers and many of the students have entered professional schools. My research focus is cellular and molecular biology of cancer with special emphasis on hematopoietic malignancies, nasopharyngeal and esophageal cancers.
