Dr. Mads Daugaard, PhD, Molecular Pathology
Senior Research Scientist at Vancouver Prostate Centre | Associate Professor at Department of Urologic Sciences | Member of Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Faculty of Medicine - University of British Columbia
Dr. Daugaard has a PhD degree from the Danish Cancer Society and Institute of Molecular Pathology, University of Copenghagen. He did his postdoctoral training in molecular pathology with Dr. Poul Sorensen, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of British Colombia, Vancouver, BC. In addition to managing the Molecular Pathology and Cell Imaging core, Dr Daugaard runs several technology development projects in the field of molecular pathology.
Dr. Ladan Fazli, MD, Pathology
Dr. Fazli has a medical degree from National University of Iran and is specialised on Anatomical and Clinical Pathology. As a pathologist dedicated to research, her main expertise is target discovery and validation of prognostic and predictive cancer biomarkers using IHC, PLA, CISH, and FISH on tissue microarrays of human and xenograft tumour samples.
Dr. Htoo Zarni Oo, MD, PhD, Molecular Pathologist
Dr. Oo has an MD from University of Hiroshima with a PhD in molecular pathology. Dr. Oo assists Drs. Daugaard and Fazli on technology development and pathology assessment of tissue from human patients and xenograft studies.
Dr. Ali Moeen, M.Sc, PhD
Dr. Moeen holds a B.Sc. in Zoology, M.Sc. in medical microbiology and a Ph.D. in medical biotechnology and molecular biology. Previously, Dr. Moeen has worked as a postdoc and research associate at UBC.
Dr. Moeen oversees and operates our digital scanning system and assists Ms. Kung with IHC procedures, proximity ligation assays, tissue processing and compilation of TMAs.
Sonia Kung, M.Sc.
Sonia has a BSc Honours in Cell and Developmental Biology and MSc in Interdisciplinary Oncology from the University of British Columbia (UBC).
In addition to maintaining the Vancouver Prostate Centre biobank for translational cancer research, Sonia specializes in a variety of histopathology staining methods, which provide further insights into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development. Her work includes profiling molecular targets and protein-protein interactions in clinical specimens using immunohistochemistry (IHC) based assays.
