T M Chan's research interests include:
1. Treatment and immuno-pathogenesis of lupus nephritis
2. Management of viral hepatitis in immunosuppressed patients with kidney diseases

The team is internationally recognized for their research output in lupus nephritis. In 2000, he published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the first randomized controlled trial demonstrating the efficacy and tolerability of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) in the treatment of severe lupus nephritis. Extended follow-up data from this investigator-initiated study was later published in the J Am Soc Nephrol (2005) and Rheumatology (Oxford) (2013). These results have subsequently been reconfirmed by other investigators and large-scale international multicenter studies, and MMF is now an established first-line standard of care treatment for lupus nephritis. The team has also investigated the potential of calcineurin inhibitors and proliferation signal inhibitors as novel treatments for lupus nephritis.
