New consortium to help researchers turn health technology discoveries into products

A new national Health Technologies Consortium (HealthTEC) to accelerate the process of turning medical discoveries into novel health technology has been launched. The consortium will matchmake industry partners with academics at research institutes and institutions of higher learning, and focus its efforts on health-sensing technologies and health analytics. To be housed at the Institute of Health Innovation & Technology (iHealthtech) at NUS, it will be led by Prof Lim Chwee Teck, who is both the Director of the consortium and NUS iHealthtech.
