HKBOG Inaugural
< Go Back

In 2014 six new research groups joined BIG, further enlarging its international network reach. One of these groups is the Hong Kong Breast Oncology Group (HKBOG).

We have interviewed Janice Tsang, Director of the Cancer Centre at Queen Mary Hospital and Founding Convenor of HKBOG, who is also acting now as BIG Voting representative on behalf of the member group. She introduces us to this collaborative research group based in Hong Kong.

The HKBOG is the first and foremost comprehensive collaborative group in Hong Kong, with representatives of all the Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) for breast oncology, including both clinical oncologists and medical oncologists from all the 6 major cancer centres in Hong Kong and both medical schools. This includes the Queen Mary Hospital (teaching hospital of The University of Hong Kong), Prince of Wales Hospital (teaching hospital of The Chinese University of Hong Kong), Princess Margaret Hospital, Pamela Youde & Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Tuen Mun Hospital.

The HKBOG was formally inaugurated with her first scientific meeting held successfully on 15 February, 2014.
