1 in 4 Malaysians are affected by cancer — we aim to reduce that percentage.
To date, we have focused primarily on ovarian, breast, and head and neck cancers. We plan to expand work on other cancers.
How we’ve made a difference
Worked with the International Prostate Cancer Association Consortium (PRACTICAL) and the Subang Aging Men’s Study to identify a number of genetic loci associated with increased risk to prostate cancer.
Worked with investigators at the Institute of Cancer Research to show that a blood test screening for prostate cancer is useful for its detection in people with inherited alterations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
