Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that recognises hand gestures by combining skin-like electronics with computer vision.
Professor Joseph Sung will join NTU Singapore as the new Dean of its Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine), with a concurrent appointment as NTU’s Senior Vice President (Health and Life Sciences), taking responsibility for the integration of university-wide activities in health, medicine, and life sciences.
To enable data transmission speeds that surpass the 5th Generation (5G) standards for telecommunications, scientists from NTU Singapore and Osaka University in Japan have built a new chip using a concept called photonic topological insulators.
The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine White Coat ceremony for the Class of 2025 was held on Tuesday, 11 August.
Scientists at NTU have developed a synthetic peptide that can make multidrug-resistant bacteria sensitive to antibiotics again when used together with traditional antibiotics, offering hope for the prospect of a combination treatment strategy to tackle certain antibiotic-tolerant infections.
Scientists from Singapore's NTU and A*STAR have developed a device that allows for medication to be applied in a less painful and intrusive way. Pressure is applied using magnets, which then form micropores under the skin, that enhance drug delivery and permeability.
A team of scientists led by NTU have discovered the parameters that determine the efficiency of a class of low-cost catalysts called spinel oxides – a discovery that breaks a bottleneck in the extraction of hydrogen from water through electrolysis, the process of splitting water with electricity.
To help the maritime industry reduce carbon emissions, tech firms can receive a boost during this COVID-19 recession from a new multi-million maritime technology scale-up initiative led by NTU's EcoLabs Centre of Innovation for Energy.
Professor Subra Suresh, President of Nanyang Technological University in Singapore (NTU Singapore), has been unanimously selected by the Board of Governors of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to receive its highest honour, the 2020 ASME Medal.
Clinician-scientists from NTU's Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine have found a way to speed up existing gold-standard COVID-19 tests, yielding results in 36 minutes.
