The Life Sciences Institute (LSI) is a research centre dedicated to the understanding of fundamental biological pathways in human health and disease, environmental science and industrial processes.
We promote scientific discovery through creative and multidisciplinary approaches in an environment that is highly collaborative. We also seek to integrate our pioneering basic research with the application and exploitation of new research discoveries. LSI brings together scientists and clinicians from five NUS faculties and supports advanced core facilities and cutting-edge research infrastructure.
Life Sciences major, Ms Lee Jia Qi, was awarded the Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Prize for her research project titled "Human ESCs-derived neurons as a model to study FEZ1 expression in human brain development".
