The group is particularly interested in discovering novel nanobiology of nanomaterials. Some of this nanobiology is detrimental to the organism's well being and some is beneficial. The differentiation of either conclusion depends heavily on our understanding of how nanomaterials interact with biological systems. The group approaches their work from an observation initiated and hypothesis driven manner. From these findings, they aim to develop nanoparticle specific rules that drive certain cell effect. Understanding these rules helps to design better nanoparticles.
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.
The initiative's approach to the development and promotion of nanotechnology research is to optimise resources in creating strategic high impact research while retaining diversity in research areas.
The minor programme in Nanoscience is offered by the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics at the Faculty of Science.
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.
The Ph.D. degree programme includes 4 compulsory courses and 2 thesis-related electives. Thesis research is co-supervised by faculty from Singapore and MIT, and in many cases, is carried out in collaborations with researchers in Singapore?s research institutes. Thesis research topics range from problems in fundamental materials physics to development of new nano-scale devices.
