Keith Syson Chan, PhD, is a translational scientist excited about cancer research that expedites experimental therapies into clinical trials that can benefit cancer patients. His team focuses on investigating: i) how aberrant cellular differentiation impacts tumor characteristics, sub-typing and patient outcome, ii) how the interactions between cancer stem cells and the extracellular matrix or immune microenvironment can be exploited for therapeutic targeting.
