We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Professor KHOO, Ui-Soon is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Pathology, The University of Hong Kong, Deputy Director of the University Pathology Laboratory (Molecular Pathology) and Honorary Consultant Pathologist at Queen Mary Hospital.

    She obtained her medical degree from the University College Galway, Ireland before joining The University of Hong Kong where she did her postgraduate pathology specialist training and her higher doctorate in research. Her research work currently focuses on the molecular genetics of breast cancer. She pioneered the study of breast cancer susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2 in Chinese breast and ovarian cancer patients. Her studies include the functional variants of the BRCA and Estrogen Receptor gene, genome-wide association studies for breast cancer in Chinese as part of the Asian Breast Consortium, identification of alternatively spliced variants in Chinese breast cancer, and FOXO transcription factors in hormone refractory breast cancer and has published widely in high impact journals.. Having recently identified a novel splice variant to the nuclear receptor co-repressor 2 (NCOR2) gene associated with tamoxifen resistance, work is on-going funded by an Innovation Technology Fund grant, to raise a monoclonal antibody targeting the epitope unique to this BQ variant, which will be used for functional and in vivo studies to confirm its role in the development of tamoxifen resistance.

    She previously researched on host genetic-factors to SARS Co-V infection with publications in Nature Genetics, J. Exp Med, J Infectious Diseases etc, particularly that of  L-SIGN, a SARS-CoV binding receptor and and its tandem repeat polymorphisms and of Myxovirus resistance-A (MxA), an antiviral protein induced by interferon (IFN)-α/β, which can inhibit viral replication.
