Short Biography
Dr. Victor Lee is currently Clinical Associate Professor of the Department of Clinical Oncology, The University of Hong Kong. He graduated in the University of Hong Kong in 2002. After internship, he received post-graduate residency training in clinical oncology in Tuen Mun Hospital, Hong Kong. He joined the Department of Clinical Oncology in 2008. He obtained his fellowship in Royal College of Radiologists in Clinical Oncology in 2010. Afterwards, he received further specialist training in interstitial brachytherapy for head and neck cancers and sarcoma in Institut Gustave Roussy in Paris, France and novel radiation techniques like stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic ablative radiotherapy in Stanford University USA. In 2013, he received further training on stereotactic body radiation therapy for liver tumors at Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto, Canada. More recently in 2015 he was awarded HKCR 15A Traveling Fellowship and pursued subspecialty training in image-guided brachytherapy for cervical cancer and pediatric oncology. His current interests include clinical and genetic studies on nasopharyngeal cancer, head and neck cancers, lung cancers, liver cancers and gastrointestinal cancers. He has published extensively in these respects. In addition, he has special interest in dosimetric studies on intensity-modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and selective internal radiation therapy with Yttrium-90 microspheres for liver tumors.
Research Interests

• Radiation dosimetric studies on head & neck and nasopharyngeal cancer 

• Genetic and molecular studies on head & neck and lung cancer 

• Stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy

• Selective internal radiation therapy for liver tumours
