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.


Pharmaceutical Engineering
The Pharmaceutical Engineering group focuses on the formulation, manufacturing and testing of pharmaceutics. 

Translational 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.

Sustainable Chemical Technologies
The Sustainable Chemical Technologies 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.
