Medical Engineering and Research Commercialization Initiative (MERCI)

MERCI

Medical Engineering Research & Commercialization Initiative (MERCI) was seeded by kind donations to the Department of Surgery, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine of the National University of Singapore (“NUS”) in 2009. Two years later, MERCI’s role in NUS was cemented under the support of NUS Office of the Deputy President (Research & Technology) and recognised as a core facility of NUS. MERCI enters a new chapter in year 2014 when we will also become a core facility of the National University Health System. MERCI emphasises the importance of understanding what the clinicians need and translating those needs into commercially viable products that would make a difference to patients’ lives.

Vision: Bringing innovation to patients.
Mission: Establishing a team and infrastructure that will drive the development & commercialisation of medical
technologies in Singapore.
