Our researchers study the biological and environmental determinants of ageing well to develop interventions and technologies that enable the elderly to remain healthy and active for as long as possible.
Our researchers develop expertise and insights relating to critical issues in the wider Asian region such as political transitions, migration, urbanisation and growth of market economies.
Biomedical Science and Translational Medicine
NUS emphasises "bench-to-bedside" translational research to develop new drugs, diagnostics and devices for the prevention and treatment of diseases. This cluster serves as a key hub for medical and public health research and advances, with a focus on Asian populations.
Finance and Risk Management
We contribute research that supports Singapore's expanding role as an international financial hub, focusing on those aspects of financial and banking systems that are relevant to policy makers, regulators and the financial industry.
Integrative Sustainability Solutions
We advance integrated sustainability solutions that are optimised for tropical, urban and Asian settings, including clean energy materials and systems, environmental surveillance and treatment or urban waterways, waste-to-energy conversion, seawater desalination and sustainable urban transport systems.
NUS researchers from diverse disciplines are working together to drive and coordinate education and R&D activities to address the needs of the marine and offshore industry.
NUS is building ultra-thin advanced materials that have a wide range of applications - from membrane technologies used in water and environmental systems, to hybrid magnetic sensors for consumer electronics and biotechnology.
NUS is developing strategic capabilities in data sciences, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, optimisation research and analytics. These capabilities will enable Singapore to harness the power of data, networks and IT to improve our living environment, create economic opportunites and build a closer community for all.
