His expertise lies in solid tumor pathology and molecular diagnostics of cancer.


Dr. Tan has conducted independent and collaborative clinical and translational investigations and has been a principal investigator (PI) and co-PI of funded research programs. These academic activities have led to 130 peer-reviewed articles published.


In recognition of his contributions to the field, Dr. Tan was invited to edit and write a gastrointestinal pathology textbook titled Advances in Surgical Pathology: Gastric Cancer, which was co-edited by Dr. Gregory Lauwers of Harvard University and was published in October 2010 by Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins. A new textbook titled Principles of Molecular Diagnostics and Personalized Cancer Medicine, edited by Dr. Tan and Dr. Henry Lynch, was published in January 2013.
