What made you decide to become a pathologist?
I found a special interest in pathology during my student days in medical school. Although I wished to be a pediatrician after graduation, I was channeled to this specialty by chance. This has proved right that I am somewhat gifted with visual image analysis.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
I have been very fortunate in learning from Professor Peter Scheuer, who is the inceptor of my knowledge in hepatopathology, and teacher of many renowned liver pathologists. Now and then, I still listen to his old stories, and learn from his many followers.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
As an audience in one of the annual meetings of the Gnomes International Liver Study Group, I was struck by the power of mutual learning and collaborative study. I admired how much their early paper, 'A classification of chronic hepatitis'. Lancet 1968; 2: 626-8, influenced the world.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
That scientific literature is full of truths as well as faults that one can easily get lost in if one does not take care to observe.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Weakness of personality has allowed many great opportunities to slip away.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To publish a liver pathology atlas.
What is your greatest regret?
That I cannot know what happens tomorrow?
How do you relax?
By staying in (talking, listening, and playing) with my three lovely daughters.
What is your favorite sport?
What is your best place in the world?
I have yet to find it, perhaps at the time of retirement.
What is your favorite film?
"Gone with the Wind".
What car do you drive?
A BMW 325I for myself, and a Toyota space wagon for which I drive my family.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
What book are you reading at the moment?
Chinese poetry, because I am trying to pick out some poems to teach my daughters. They are somehow not taught in school.
Why did you get in involved in
Because of my liver friend, Professor Amar Paul Dhillon, who is on the editorial board and likes to exaggerate my ability.
