Dr. Chan joined the faculty of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center after finishing her Medical Oncology/Hematology fellowship training at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. During her fellowship, her research focus was on the manipulation of an enzyme in the apoptotic pathway to affect tumor growth and radiation sensitivity, and her clinical focus was on gastrointestinal malignancies. At Vanderbilt, her clinical interest is in gastrointestinal malignancies, including cancers of the colon, rectum, anal canal, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, and bile duct. Her research interests reside in the development of more effective treatment regimens for these diseases, particularly colorectal cancer, and the identification of markers that may predict response to specific therapies.
