Cardiovascular disease and metabolic diseases are on the rise in Asia and throughout the world.
Diseases like hypertension, atherosclerosis, and diabetes account for a disproportionately high percentage of health care costs both in Singapore and across Asia, presenting unique opportunities for the study of the affected population.
Our Outram Campus, with the National Heart Center located on the same premises and the Diabetes Center just a stone’s throw away at the Singapore General Hospital, presents a wealth of opportunities for translational and clinical research in cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The program houses state-of-the-art technologies for profiling mitochondrial function and metabolic adaptations in human patients and other model organisms.
