Dr Ip, Pun Ching Philip 葉品正
Dr. Ip is a graduate of The University of Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, and completed his postgraduate pathology training at The University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital. Dr. Ip undertook gynecologic pathology fellowships at The Vancouver General Hospital, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and The Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. Dr. Ip has presented widely and internationally, and authored papers and book chapters in the field of Gynecologic Pathology, including the 4th Edition of WHO Classification of Tumours of Female Reproductive Organs.
One of the daily challenges of a pathologist is to correctly classify tumors into biological categories so that patients are managed appropriately. However, many lesions are not classifiable as either benign or malignant. These problematic or atypical lesions, even if managed conservatively, often require long follow-ups, which can lead to anxiety in the patient. To supplement my years of experience in diagnostic gynecological pathology, I endeavor to gain a greater understanding of gynecological malignancies, especially those with ambiguous morphology and uncertain biological behavior. My research interest is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of the development and progression of some of these malignancies, in search of biomarkers to aid diagnosis and correlate them with clinical features and patient outcomes. This valuable information has a direct impact on patient management, and will serve as a foundation for the development of targeted therapy and personalized medicine. I currently have active and established collaborations both locally and internationally.
In addition to teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students and supervising pathologist trainees, I am currently serving as the Chief Examiner in Anatomical Pathology for The Hong Kong College of Pathologists. I am a MBBS II System Block Planning coordinator and MBBS IV Clinical Academic Advisor.
