Dr. Choy focuses on the discovery and development of novel therapeutic
candidates and predictive biomarkers for various types of cancer. With years of high-quality training in life
science research supported by the Croucher Foundation, Dr. Choy
hopes to make important contributions to help people who struggle with cancer
everyday, and to perpetuate the philanthropy of our Founder Mr. Noel
