In the area of population-based study, Asian childhood solid tumours are under-represented in current research. Major international studies in paediatric solid tumours are largely based on Caucasian and African-American populations. Directed research into the epidemiology, clinical outcomes, tumour biology, and socio-economic impact of paediatric cancer in Asian children is essential. A better understanding of these aspects will allow better applicability to our local and regional populations.
To complement the Comprehensive Childhood Brain & Solid Tumour Programme, an Education, Exchange and Collaboration track serves to enhance inter-institutional collaboration, reach out to the broader population in Southeast Asia and integrate training and education into our healthcare and research activities.
