Students complete their advanced training in one of five specialty tracks :
Cancer and Stem Cell Biology (CSCB)
Our rapidly growing CSCB program takes both basic and clinical-translational approaches to understand key signaling pathways of cancer and highlight innovation in developing and advancing cancer therapeutics.
Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders (CVMD)
The increased prevalence of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders (e.g. hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart failure, diabetes, etc.) poses an enormous risk for the inhabitants of Singapore and the world. With an aging and increasingly sedentary population, the unabated rise in these diseases is unlikely to slow in the near future, and their treatment accounts for a disproportionate percentage of health care costs. The CVMD Program will train graduate students in this important discipline.
Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID)
The Signature Research Program in EID integrates the surveillance of new and emerging pathogens with the development of new treatment, prevention, and control strategies.
Health Services and Systems Research (HSSR)
HSSR is a center of academic excellence for research and education on the organization, financing, and delivery of health services. Our focus is on public health and clinical service innovation in an increasingly complex and connected world.
Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders (NBD)
The Signature Research Program in NBD comprises research groups that investigate molecular, developmental, systems and cognitive neuroscience.
