Research plays an important role at SingHealth. Together with our partners in academic medicine, Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, we are increasing our investment in translational and clinical research platforms, so that we can continue to deliver world-class scientific discoveries. Our basic scientists and clinical researchers work together to find solutions for preventing and treating diseases relevant to the region.
We encourage our researchers and clinician-scientists to take on downstream research projects that make a tangible difference to patient care and health outcomes – in other words, we support research that saves lives.
So far, we have amassed a chest of clinical research projects that have greatly benefitted patients, and each year we make it our goal to bring new treatments and better diagnostic tools to our patients’ bedside.
