Biography
Dr. Keith Syson Chan received his PhD from the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2004. He was trained under the classical concept that epithelial cancers develop via a multi-step process. Through pathologic evaluation of tumor tissues, he developed the appreciation that cancer is a disease of aberrant cellular differentiation. He then joined Prof. Irving Weissman’s laboratory at Stanford University to continue his postdoctoral studies (2004-09). He was amongst the first to isolate cancer stem cells (CSCs) from human bladder urothelial carcinomas, and investigated CD47 as a mechanism for immune evasion. Dr. Chan is currently an associate professor at Baylor College of Medicine, emphasizing on translating CSC-targeted therapeutics into human clinical trials.
