Cancer is one of the most important causes of death in our society. 

The Center for Cancer Research comprises a multidisciplinary research team with an excellent track record in cancer studies. Members of the Center have complementary expertise in many key areas of cancer research.

Cancer research at the Center focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of cancer and the development of cancer diagnostics and therapeutics. Specifically, we are working on nasopharyngeal carcinoma, liver cancer, colorectal carcinoma, and other cancers that are prevalent in Hong Kong.

The goal of Center is to promote basic and translational research to advance our understanding  of cancer development, improvements in diagnostic and prognostic methods, and identification and development of novel cancer drug leads.

The Center also organizes regular talks and seminars on cancer-related topics.
