Chairman of International Union for Difficult-to-treat Diseases
Editor-in-chief for Journal of Cancer, Oncomedicine, New Approaches combating Cancer & Aging.
Dr. Yan-Gao Man holds a Medical degree in Western Medicine, Master degree in Microbiology, and PhD in Cell Biology/Anatomy. He completed postdoctoral training in Cancer Biology at National Cancer Institute, NIH, USA. Dr. Man served as the Director of Gynecological and Breast Research Laboratory of Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and American Registry of Pathology for 16 years. Currently, he serves as Adjunct Distinguished Scientist at Hackensack University Medical Center, NJ, USA, the Vice President for Research & Collaboration at South Hospital of Nanjing, China, visiting professor of China Key Laboratory of Sub-health Intervention, the Editor-in-chief for several international medical journals, and the Chairman of Board Directors and Secretary General of International Union for Difficult-to-treat Diseases (www.iudd.org; www.canceraging.org; www.canceraging.org/2016/). Dr. Man has authored and co-authored over 250 published articles and abstracts in the cancer field, 46 non-scientific articles, 4 book chapters, and 14 novel protocols for molecular and immunohistochemical assays. Dr. Man’s medical practice and research are primarily focused on the mechanism of cancer invasion and metastasis. He is the originator of most updated hypotheses for cancer invasion and metastasis; his hypothesis of cancer invasion has been recognized as “more compatible with existing experimental evidence than the traditional “protoelytic enzyme” theory” [Pandey PR et al. Front Biosci. 15: 226–236, 2011], and his hypothesis of cancer metastasis is the only one that can reasonably explain all major steps of cancer metastasis among all existing theories.
