Research Interests
:
• Oral Cancer in the Asia Pacific – Develop linkages with countries in the Asia-Pacific to have a consortium of researches with joint data to produce meaningful results for the region • Epidemiology of Oral Mucosal Lesions – Has obtained a baseline prevalence data on oral mucosal lesions (includes oral cancer & precancer) for Malaysia and continually standardizing methodologies of data collection on oral mucosal lesions via training and calibration for Malaysia and the region.(Headed 2 major international collaborative projects from 1992-2001 with collaborators from Ministry of Health Malaysia, Aichigakuin University, Niigata University and funding from Monbusho and Aichigakuin University; with manpower and infrastructure from University of Malaya and Ministry of Health Malaysia – this study had produced Malaysia’s first and only baseline data on oral mucosal lesions; and interethnic data on precancer, habitual and micronutrient factors. The oral mucosal lesions baseline data was used for MOH Oral Health Division to plan their ‘National Oral Cancer Screening Programme) • Biomolecular Studies on Oral Cancer and Precancers – Genomics, Proteomics and biological characterization of oral cancer cells and tissues - continually maintaining an update on techniques via organizing workshops for the region and forming collaborative partners such that Malaysia can be a coordinating and reference centre for biomelocular reseach on oral cancer and precancer for the region. • Immunoflourescent Studies on Chronic Oral Mucosal Lesions-actively researching and into diagnostic methods which can monitor disease management in chronic oral mucosal disease which are manifestation of systemic or dermatologic conditions via collaboration/initiating collaboration with Dermatologists, gastroenterologists and other Internal Medicine specialists.
