Professor Chan joined HKU in 1989 and led the Department of Pathology as Head between 2002 to 2011.


He was a humanist, a man of great culture and was the driving force in establishing the Center of Humanities and Medicine at HKU. LC, as he was known to friends and colleagues was Director of the Faculty's Medical Ethics and Humanities Unit.
