Biography 
Lecture Series

Professor Sir Alasdair Breckenridge was a highly respected educator and globally acclaimed clinical pharmacologist, international scientist, and visionary regulatory professional during his lifetime.  He was associated with many scientific, academic and policy achievements around the world, and one of these was his close association with Singapore and the Centre of Regulatory Excellence (CoRE) at the Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School (Duke-NUS).

Professor Sir Alasdair’s unparalleled leadership and guidance as the inaugural Chairman from 2014 to 2019 contributed in a significant way to establishing CoRE’s unique position as an influential contributor to regulatory thought leadership and capacity building in the Asia-Pacific, and increasingly at a global level. His invaluable encouragement and advocacy helped nurture an enterprising and innovative culture and has laid a strong foundation for its continuing growth and will guide CoRE’s values and future development.

There is much to celebrate about Professor Sir Alasdair’s extraordinary achievements, work ethic, and vision, and we wish to honour his memory and continue his mission by launching the Alasdair Breckenridge Fund.

 

In keeping with Professor Sir Alasdair Breckenridge’s vision and interest in promoting professional excellence, the Alasdair Breckenridge Fund is established to further regulatory capacity building through study awards tenable at CoRE.

This fund will continue to promote sustained and meaningful professional capacity development, and broaden access to learning opportunities across the region. This study award will support and finance healthcare professionals from National Regulatory Authorities, Ministries of Health, and related organisations from ASEAN and Asia-Pacific to enrol in courses run by CoRE. This will enhance their professional development and strengthen the regulatory capacity of their organisations. The fund will offset participants’ course fees, travel expenses and accommodation.
