The Tan Lab conducts translational bioinformatics and cancer systems biology research to understand and overcome treatment resistance in cancer through biomarker discovery, predicting drug combinations, and co-targeting tumor microenvironment. The Tan Lab acts as a "connector" to provide seamless integration of computational and statistical methods in experimental and clinical research. Our lab is currently working in the following research areas:

  1. Developing predictive biomarkers from multi-omics data integration
  2. Decoding tumor ecosystems using integrative approach
  3. Predicting drug combinations using network-based approach
