RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS Overview Research Institutes and Centres Research Areas Within Faculty of Science è The Faculty of Science is home to many You may also have opportunities to diferent clusters of research excellence, participate in the activities or research BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES both in fundamental research to create work of some of the research institutes and è Molecular Cell & Developmental Biology: knowledge, and applied research to spur centres in NUS, which include: Cell Signalling, Organelles & Cell innovation. Centre for Advanced 2D Materials Biology; Fish Developmental Biology & è Apart from the fnal year project which Centre for Bioimaging Sciences Disease Modelling; Host-Pathogen you are required to or may undertake Interactions & Immunology; Plant during your honours year of study, we Centre for Ion Beam Applications Molecular & Developmental Biology; have various research programmes Centre for Quantitative Finance Stem Cell & Cancer Biology. which ofer students opportunities to Centre for Quantum Technologies è Biophysical Sciences: Bioimaging pursue independent research projects. Centre for Wavelets, Approximation Sciences; Computational Biology; è Through these programmes, students and Information Processing Mechanobiology; Protein Science & will develop valuable research skills, Chemical, Molecular and Material Proteomics; Structural Biology. cultivate critical thinking skills and Analysis Centre è Environmental & Evolution Biology: problem-solving abilities as well as Biodiversity; Ecology; Evolution. sharpen communication and Institute of Data Science presentation skills. Some of these Institute for Mathematical Sciences CHEMISTRY programmes are: Life Sciences Institute è Advanced Materials: Energy Materials; • The Undergraduate Research Mechanobiology Institute Graphene & Nanocarbons; Luminescent Opportunities Programme in Science NUS Environmental Research Institute Biomarkers; Nanomaterials; Organic (UROPS), which allows you in your Optoelectronic Materials. 2nd or 3rd year of undergraduate NUS Nanoscience and Nanotechnology è Organic Chemistry: Asymmetric study to experience scientifc Institute Synthesis; Organic Catalysis; Transition research and discovery though Protein and Proteomics Centre Metal Catalysis. participation in research projects Risk Management Institute è Chemical Biology & Medicinal Chemistry: (see page 16).
