Dr. Yan-Gao Man received his medical degree in 1978 and MS in Microbiology in 1985 from Hubei Medical College of China, and PhD in Cell Biology/Anatomy from Howard University Medical School, Washington DC, in 1998. He received postdoctoral training in Cancer Biology from National Cancer Institute in 1999. His research interests focus on the mechanism and early detection of tumor progression, invasion, and metastasis. After postdoctoral training, he has authored or co-authored over 160 scientific publications, and received 15 external and internal funding for cancer research. He has published 14 novel protocols for immunohistochemical- and molecular assays, and introduced several novel hypotheses for tumor progression, invasion, and metastasis. These hypotheses have gained increased popularity, and he has been invited by a number of world’s prestigious institutes, including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute of Harvard Medical School, National Institutes of Health, and Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, to present the hypotheses. Dr. Man worked as the director of Gynecological and Breast Research Laboratory, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and American Registry of Pathology between 1995 and 2011. He is a visiting professor of Jilin University, China, an editorial board member of The Open Breast Cancer Journal, associate editor-in-chief of Cancer Epidemiology—International Journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Detection, and Prevention, and co-editor-in-chief of Journal of Cancer. He serves as a grant review panel member for a number of international and national cancer-research related organizations. Before March 2013, he was a Senior Distinguished Scientist in Diagnostic and Translational Research Center, Henry Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine. Currently, he is Vice president for Research and Collaboration, South Hospital of Nanjing, Nanjing, China
