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.
Warming oceans, tropical storm surges & polar ice caps losing their gravitational pull- these are the host of factors that will worsen the effects of climate change for the tropics, featuring interviews with Asian School of the Environment Chair, Prof Benjamin Horton, Executive Director of the Nanyang Environment and Water Research Institute Prof Shane Snyder, and Principal Investigator at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, Assoc Prof Adam Switzer.
Assoc Prof Tor Shu Beng, Interim Executive Director, Singapore Centre for 3D Printing at NTU, explained that 3D Printing was pioneered in the late 80s in Singapore, used for product design and prototypes. With today's 3D printing, products can be made for commercial and industrial applications.
Scientists from NTU Singapore have developed a way to make colloidal quantum dots produce laser light with the help of an electric field.
NTU Singapore's Lee Kong Chian School of the Medicine, the National Healthcare Group, and the National Neuroscience Institute jointly launched Brain Bank Singapore, the first of its kind here.
Scientists from NTU Singapore in a collaboration with the University of Groningen (UG) in the Netherlands, have developed a method to analyse which pairs of materials in next-generation perovskite solar cells will harvest the most energy.
An international research team led by NTU Singapore has found that microorganisms living in the gut may alter the ageing process, which could lead to the development of food-based treatment to slow it down.
