The major focus of Dr Lee Soo Chin’s laboratory is to study pharmacogenetics and genomics in breast cancer. Using the neoadjuvant model, she has completed several clinical studies with collection of biological samples, including germline DNA, tumor and plasma, and conducted immunohistochemistry, genomic and proteomic studies to understand chemotherapy effects and to identify predictive markers of treatment response. She has also studied the pharmacogenetics of several commonly used chemotherapeutic agents in breast cancer, including doxorubicin, docetaxel and gemcitabine, and identified candidate gene variants that influence treatment toxicity and outcome.
