First Asian team to win top cancer research award

An 11-member team from Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand, led by Professor Patrick Tan from Duke-NUS Medical School, has found that many Asian cancers could be linked to specific exposures and environmental agents such as bacteria, viruses and toxins. The work made them the first Asian team to receive the prestigious American Association for Cancer Research Team Science Award earlier this month.
