Missing Publications?
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, dedup, and bring in cleaner data than ROS supplies.
  • 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, It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hku". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one,
Want to make a "Selected Publications" section?
  • 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".
Want your "Invited Lectures & Keynote Speeches" to appear?
  • Some people did not want them, so we turned it off. If you want them to appear here, please write to the address below, and tell us!
Want your Biography to appear here?
  • Please send to us at address below, and we will add a biography section to your page. It could also hold jpeg or gif images.
  • Similar for "Professional Qualifications", and "Professional Societies"
  • Did you remember to claim your ORCID account? If not, you cannot use it with publishers. And, although we loaded publications into it, they won't appear there until you claim it.

Dr. Eric WC Tse

Clinical Associate Professor

BSc(BiomedSc)(HK), MBBS(HK), PhD(Cantab), FRCP, FRCP(Edin), FRCP(Glasg), FRCPath, FHKCP, FHKAM(Medicine)


Dr. Tse graduated MBBS with the John Anderson Gold Medal from the University of Hong Kong. He also obtained a PhD at the University of Cambridge, and was awarded the Max Perutz Research Prize by the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge. Upon completion of clinical haematology training at Queen Mary Hospital, Dr. Tse has been appointed honorary consultant physician in the Department of Medicine.


In addition to clinical research on the treatment of haematological malignancies, in particular T-cell and NK-cell lymphoid neoplasms, his basic and translational research have focused on the development of novel therapeutic approach in cancer treatment through identifying potential targets and understanding the fundamental biology of cancer. Dr. Tse has pioneered the development of intracellular antibodies in the therapy of cancer during his early stage of career. He is currently examining the role of peptidyl-prolyl-isomerase PIN1 and its interplay with CKS proteins in cell cycle regulation, apoptosis and DNA damage response in cancer and neurodevelopment. Furthermore, through the use of therapeutic agents to up-regulate aquaglyceroporin 9 expression, he is also investigating the possibility of extending the application of arsenic trioxide beyond the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukaemia.
