Researchers from the NUS Institute for Health Innovation & Technology developed the novel STAMP technology that could sensitively and accurately detect and classify cancer cells, as well as determine the disease aggressiveness from the least invasive biopsies.
NUS Medicine researchers have launched a first-in-Asia clinical trial on a new, less invasive test that is more accurate in detecting curable hypertension.
The NRF Fellowship for Artificial Intelligence (AI) is given to outstanding young researchers to lead impactful and independent AI research in Singapore. Three NUS recipients of this fellowship are carrying out innovative work in this area that may one day have a deep influence on society.
Associate Professor Murray Barrett from the NUS Centre for Quantum Technologies is building an atomic clock that will be accurate to a quadrillionth of a second. A clock of such precision could reveal and resolve some fundamental questions of physics.
A ‘triangulene’ molecule, observed with a Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and a Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscope, was synthesised by NUS chemists fusing 15 benzene rings together. These molecules could be used in the development of next generation molecular spintronic devices.
Using theoretical equations, NUS researchers have predicted locations of atomic defects in the 2D material WSe2 (right) and confirmed their position (left). This breakthrough reveals the origins of certain light emission properties in WSe2 and may improve optical performances in other 2D materials.
Researchers from Duke-NUS have found the mechanism behind how dormant neural stem cells in fruit flies (left) are activated (right) to stimulate the generation of new brain cells. If similar mechanisms apply to humans, this discovery could potentially help people with brain injuries or diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
