NTU Singapore, the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC), and the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) have launched a joint laboratory that will develop advanced eye imaging technologies and drug delivery systems.
Prof Subra Suresh, a Distinguished University Professor and President of NTU Singapore, was honoured by his alma mater, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, which launched the Prof Subra Suresh Institute Lecture Series.
In five to 10 years' time, healing a wound could become faster. According to scientists from NTU in Singapore, certain stem cells in our bodies produce healing agents like secretome to speed up the repair of damaged tissues. The research team discovered a way to produce higher amounts of this agent artificially in laboratory conditions.
The CETRAN centre, run by NTU researchers, is complete with traffic lights and mock skyscrapers, is at the heart of Singapore's push to become a hub for autonomous technology.
Most (93 per cent) mobile apps for suicide prevention and depression management do not provide all the six suicide prevention strategies that are commonly recommended in international clinical guidelines, a study led by NTU has found.
A research team led by NTU has found that a compound in green tea plant can inhibit the growth of a bacteria strain that causes tuberculosis, paving the way for potential novel drugs to be developed for the infectious disease.
Scientists at NTU have found a way to turn plastic waste into a valuable chemical that can be used for purposes like energy generation. The researchers developed a catalyst to break down plastics using light energy.
Scientists from NTU have uncovered the structure of a particular pneumonia virus enzyme. This could be the key to helping researchers design therapies for viruses that often lead to antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
An Asia-wide genome mapping project has discovered at least 10 ancestral lineages within Asia, revealing a large genetic diversity that far exceeds other areas such as northern Europe, which only has a single ancestral lineage that traces back to one common ancestor. The study was conducted by GenomeAsia 100K, a non-profit consortium launched in 2016 and hosted by NTU
Professor William Chen, Director of NTU's Food Science and Technology, shares NTU's efforts in translating cutting-edge academic research into practical and sustainable innovations that benefit society and beyond.
