Global climate change and geopolitical tensions — especially US-China relations — will pose risks to businesses this year, writes Professor Danny Quah, Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at NUS. Companies can stay the course by returning to fundamentals and providing society what it needs.
NUS scientists are part of an international team producing a first-of-its-kind ultra-high resolution 3D comprehensive map of the neural network within the human brain. This effort could lead to more effective treatments for neurodegenerative diseases in the future.
Researchers from NUS Engineering, together with scientists from ETH Zurich in Switzerland, have developed a bandage that both helps blood to clot and does not stick to wounds — the first time these properties have been combined in one material.
Dr Simon Rowedder from NUS Southeast Asian Studies gave his insights into China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the strategy of Laos to dramatically increase their land links.
An NUS team has developed a personalised assessment tool which can detect the incidence of cancer, predict patient survivability and determine patient suitability for immunotherapy cancer treatment.
Dehydrated, low on sugar or at risk of skin infection? A wearable sensor created by NUS researchers can now tell from your sweat. The innovative sweat pH monitor could easily be integrated into existing smartwatches or fitness trackers at low cost.
The bite of the Indian cobra can be deadly. Professor R. Manjunatha Kini from NUS, along with a team of international collaborators, have reported the sequencing and assembly of a high-quality genome of this venomous snake
Researchers from NUS Mechanobiology Institute found that the formation of the ‘V’ patterns – also known as chevron patterns – in the swimming muscles of fish do not simply arise from genetic instruction or biochemical pathways but actually require physical forces to correctly develop.
NUS researchers have developed flexible, highly-efficient, large-area light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for new wearable device technologies. The novel LEDs emit light in the near-infrared range and could be used in facial recognition or virtual reality eye-tracking technologies.
These beautiful artistic crystals resulted when NUS Chemistry researchers recrystallised an organic compound under different conditions. They also obtained the usual straight crystals in addition to flexible crystals.
Researchers from the NUS Mechanobiology Institute have shown that cells migrate and spread effectively only if the fibrous protein meshwork that surrounds them is spaced close enough. This finding could explain the abnormal motility patterns displayed by cancer cells.
