About Us

Our passion and goal is to develop highly personalized forms of clinical treatment for nasopharyngeal, prostate, head and neck cancer. As every tumor has it's own unique characteristics, understanding these characteristics could help us predict the success rate of today's therapies. Utilizing bioinformatics enable us to analyze datasets, which are used to create clinical diagnostic tools for personalized therapy. 

This laboratory is led by Prof Soo Khee Chee and Dr. Melvin Chua, together with individuals from a variety of research backgrounds and qualifications. This diversity brings in different talents together, all of us working towards a common goal using different skill sets
