Research leads to cures

Even though cancer today is not the killer disease it used to be, we cannot lose sight of the efforts that past generations have put in to support medical research in order to make this happen. This is why we have to continue investing in research for better diagnostic tools, treatments and cures so that our children and future generations can enjoy long, healthy lives.

Research driven by the West does not answer many of the questions our doctors see in the local population. We have different disease burdens and treatment priorities. At SingHealth, we regard research partnerships as a crucial step in reaping results that benefit our patients.

One such collaboration would be the academic medicine partnership shared between SingHealth and Duke-NUS Medical School – together we build on our strengths in education and research to discover new treatments and cures that help our patients lead long, healthy lives.

Now you have the opportunity to inspire, support and enable clinician-scientists to discover new cures.

Aside from monetary donations, our early phase clinical trials unit, SingHealth Investigational Medicine Unit (IMU), also seeks healthy volunteers to participate in our clinical trials. Most trials at IMU investigate potential new treatments and tests, such as biomarkers. Rest assured that all clinical trials are reviewed by Centralised Institutional Review Board (CIRB) to ensure that volunteers’ interests and safety are protected.
