Research Focus


The School focuses on five areas of research which are of emerging relevance and importance to Singapore and beyond. It is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories, advanced computing facilities and an intellectually stimulating environment - the key ingredients of a world-class research institution.

Nanotechnology & Printed Devices
The Nanotechnology and Printed Devices group in School of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering (SCBE) aims to solve new frontier technological problems pertaining to health, environment, energy and sustainability using nanotechnology approaches. 

Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine
Musculo-skeletal injuries are becoming increasingly prevalent, largely associated with the aging population and other sports-related and traumatic injuries. This represents a major global disease burden, and an immense growth opportunity.

Catalysis & Chemical System Engineering
The Catalysis & Chemical System Engineering group focuses on the study of heterogeneous catalysis and photocatalysis, and the fundamental chemical engineering problems arising in chemical and pharmaceutical industries. 

Synthetic Biology
Synthetic Biology involves the design and construction of new biological units such as proteins/enzymes, gene circuits, and cellular systems or the re-design of existing biological systems. 

Biosensors & Devices
Biosensors and bio-devices play a central role in the areas of biological sciences, healthcare and therapeutics.
