Background

  • Dr Kevin Tay is a cancer specialist currently practicing in Gleneagles Hospital Singapore. Dr Tay’s subspecialty interest is in women related cancers such as breast cancers and gynaecological cancers, soft tissue and bone sarcomas and also hematological malignancies such as lymphoma, multiple myeloma and leukemia.
  • Dr Tay did his post-graduate training in internal medicine at the University of Hawaii and his medical oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institute of Health (NIH) in USA. Dr Tay was also appointed chief resident and chief fellow during both his residency and fellowship program respectively. He is one of the few cancer doctors in Singapore who hold American Board certifications for the practice of Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology.
  • During his time at NCI/NIH, Dr Tay trained under several renowned oncologists, including Dr Sandy Swain, a world expert on breast cancer, and Dr Giuseppe Giaccone, the previous chief of the Medical Oncology Branch at National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Health, United States. Dr. Tay also did two years of research at NIH under the mentorship of Dr Wyndham Wilson, Dr Louis Staudt and Dr Elaine Jaffe. His main research focus was on understanding the tumor biology in aggressive lymphomas.
  • Upon returning to Singapore in early 2010, Dr Tay joined the Department of Medical Oncology at National Cancer Center. Although he now has his private practice, he is still a visiting consultant at the National Cancer Centre of Singapore. He continued to be active in translational research and was part of the core group at the National Cancer Center that was awarded the prestigious center grant by the National Medical Research Council of Singapore. Their research work included discovering a novel mutation in NK/T-cell lymphoma and re-defined a new subtype of enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma. Both of which were featured in the Straits Times and published in high impact oncology journals.
  • Dr Tay is a member of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Hematology and the Singapore Society of Oncology.
