Cancer and Stem Cell Biology

IBM Programme Cancer & Stem Cell Biology (CSCB)

Cancer affects one in three people during their lifetime and is a leading cause of death worldwide. Our rapidly growing CSCB programme takes both basic and clinical-translational approaches to understand key signaling pathways of cancer and highlight innovation in developing and advancing cancer therapeutics. Our groups are conducting world-class science in many different fields in cancer research including stem cell research to fight against cancer.

Our program benefits from close interactions with collaborative networks with the existing cancer research community in Singapore, including the National Cancer Center (NCC), Singapore General Hospital, NUS, and the A*STAR Research Institutes.
