Vision and Mission

The Centre of Regulatory Excellence (CoRE) was established in 2014 at the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore to support strengthening of health product regulatory systems in the Asia Pacific region, with a special focus on South-East Asia. Guided by its mission, CoRE contributes to improving patient access to health products, and enhancing regional health systems and health security. The Centre is gaining increasing recognition as a neutral, academic convener of dialogues, seminars and round tables involving international thought leaders in health regulation and healthcare systems.

The centre offers a unique multi-pronged approach through key strategic approaches of administering education and training, conducting consultancy, and encouraging a think tank approach with an Asian perspective.

As a trusted partner within a wide collaborative network of international and regional regulatory authorities, industry, non-governmental organisations and academic institutions, CoRE actively coordinates and contributes to regional capacity building and systems strengthening initiatives.
