IBN was established to spearhead the advancement of biomedical sciences in Singapore. A member of the A*STAR's biomedical sciences institutes, IBN is a leading national program with an international vision and a dynamic interdisciplinary research environment.
This laboratory conducts energy storage materials and battery device R&D to provide portable energy sources and advanced energy storage solutions for application in renewable energy, smart grids, biomass, urban lifestyle devices and consumer care industries. research areas are energy storage materials and energy storage devices.
The laboratory is a joint effort between IMRE and the Department of Chemistry at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Areas of research are: Molecular catalysis; Biomimetic materials; Energy materials; Carbon materials.
MBIís primary focus is to identify, measure and describe how the forces for motility and morphogenesis are expressed at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Toward that goal, we are working to create a common international standard for defining these steps by developing powerful new computational models, experimental reagents, and tools for studying diseases of cells and tissues. Our goal is then to transfer these basic discoveries to both the clinic and the classroom.
The Nanoelectronics Group is hosted by the Nanoelectronics Laboratory (NEL), which was established in Sept 2006, mainly from the former Ion Beam Processing Laboratory. The group conducts, promotes, and nurtures interdisciplinary research and education activities in nanoscale science and technology. Its research activities are in five main fields: oxide based nanoelectronics; computational nanoelectronics; carbon based nanoelectronics; organic nanoelectronics; solar cells.
Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.
Their mission is to investigate the natural structure-property-function relationship of cells and molecules so as to further understand the physiological functions and establish possible connections to human diseases.
Excellent students from all scientific and engineering, as well as biomedical disciplines are welcome to apply for NanoCore PhD Scholarships. Students whom we are recruiting typically are in the top 10% of their class and have shown the ambition and ability to immerse themselves in challenging, high impact research projects. We also highly welcome students who have entrepreneurial ambitions.
Graphene is a new age multifunctional material. As chemists, we are engaged in the growth, processing, derivatizing of graphene to make dna sensors, hybrids for solar cells, membrane for water purification. We hope to improve the quality of human life by researching on graphene, which we believe to be a fundamental building block for many useful devices.
