Dr Ngo is a consultant specialist medical oncologist. Prior to Curie Oncology, Dr Ngo had been practising at National Cancer Centre, Singapore (NCCS) from 2005 to 2012 before moving to Raffles Cancer Centre, Raffles Hospital from 2012 to 2019. Aside from being a Clinical Tutor at the Yong Loo Lin Medical School, she was also a Visiting Consultant to both KKWCH Gynaecologic Cancer Centre and KKWCH Breast Centre as well as to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. In addition, she spent 5 years caring for patients in hospice home care and in-patient hospice services in the community prior to joining NCCS.

Dr Ngo’s areas of interest are in breast and gynaecologic cancers, cancer genetics and genetic counselling, psychosocial oncology and palliative medicine, in addition to general medical oncology. In pursuing her sub-specialty interest in gynaecologic cancers, Dr Ngo was awarded the Health Manpower Development Programme Award to spend a year at the Gillette Center for Gynecologic Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), USA. In collaboration with the MGH gynaecologic oncology team, she designed and conducted several investigator-initiated clinical trials, testing novel drugs and treatment strategies in subsets of gynaecologic cancers with molecularly defined pathways. She had received a grant from the Singhealth Foundation for her research work and was involved in multiple clinical trials in Raffles Hospital focusing on breast and gynaecologic cancers. She has contributed to numerous publications in peer reviewed journals and written book chapters.

Recognizing the challenges faced by patients, caregivers, and even survivors, Dr Ngo started the Raffles Cancer Support Programme in April 2013 to provide education, psychosocial and emotional support throughout the cancer journey. She also launched an e-newsletter to keep patients updated on the programme, provide tips on healthy living and get up close and personal with members of our healthcare team.
