Translational research at SingHealth

At SingHealth, we specialise in translating basic scientific outcomes into drugs and diagnostic tools that are ready to enter the clinical trial phase.Our core research platforms, such as SingHealth Experimental Medicine Centre (SEMC) or SingHealth Tissue Repository (STR), are key enablers in our researchers’ achievements.

Clinical trials at SingHealth

A key driver of clinical research, SingHealth is the largest public healthcare provider in Singapore. Clinical trials at SingHealth are supported by an experienced team of clinicians and clinical trials coordinators. Our trial monitors proactively track ongoing trials to ensure that the conduct of these trials meet the highest standards.

We are a strategic partner to many industry and academic partners seeking to carry out regulated clinical trials. We have participated in numerous studies, ranging from highly specialised phase Is to global multi-centre phase IIIs, some of which were used for product registration.

On our two campuses at SGH and KKH, our PIs conduct more than 100 clinical high quality clinical trials a year, which account for almost 50 per cent of the national total.
