Short Bio:

Dr. Hoang is an Anatomical Pathologist and Clinical Assistant Professor at Vancouver General Hospital and the University of British Columbia, offering subspecialty expertise in gynecologic pathology. She completed her pathology training at the University of British Columbia and fellowship training in gynecologic pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. In her early career, she has helped to refine the molecular underpinnings of a novel form of uterine sarcoma and push the traditional histologic classification scheme of endometrial carcinoma towards a molecular-based model. Currently, her research is centered on improving diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies for HPV-independent cancers of the female lower genital tract (vulva and cervix), which represent understudied and under-recognized diseases with important clinical ramifications.
