LSI

LSI has programs of research in immunology, neurobiology and ageing, tissue engineering, lipidomics (SLING) and human molecular variation (iOmics). Please click on tabs above for details.

Immunology

The Immunology Programme at NUS brings together 30 immunologists at NUS and NUH. It is positioned to become a world class centre of Immunological research, building deep links with Its goal is to nucleate the immunology community and cement ties with localSingapore research institutions and hospitals for a seamless translation of basic science to clinical medicine. 10 of our principal investigators. (PI) labs are now located under one roof at the Centre for Life Sciences, operating on an open laboratory concept, facilitating inter-lab communication and encouraging collaboration.

Neurobiology/Ageing

The Neurobiology/Ageing Programme consists of a broad-based group of investigators who conduct inter-disciplinary research that includes developmental and molecular neurobiology, the neurobiology of perception and cognition...



Tissue Engineering

The NUS Tissue Engineering Programme (NUSTEP) is a multidisciplinary programme that aims to develop core competencies and to create innovations in cell and construct technologies for effective integration of living systems for clinical therapies. The goal is to establish a globally competitive programme in tissue engineering with significant research outcomes that will result in international recognition for high quality research with clinical and industrial applications.

SLING

The SLING program is a major global magnet for collaborating parties in lipidomics, from academia and industry, delivering new technologies and intellectual capital.

iOmics

The iOmics program is a major project with the aim to investigate the extent to which the Singaporean ethnic groups vary within and between themselves. Reserachers study of intra- and inter-ethnic variation of human subjects across a variety of "omics" technologies, which include: (i) genomics; (ii) transcriptomics; (iii) lipidomics; and (iv) microbiome metagenomics. The over arching purpose of these studies is understanding the correlations between the different biological properties of these individuals and how this informs the normal and disease states.
