In line with the School’s vision of redefining medicine and transforming healthcare, the motivation of LKCMedicine’s research is to shape future medicine and healthcare through disruptive discoveries and inventions that are of national and global impact.
Accordingly, our research programmes focus on addressing therapeutic priority areas that are relevant both locally and globally. The five key research foci at LKCMedicine are: Neuroscience and Mental Health, Population Health, Respiratory and Infectious Diseases, Vascular/Metabolic Diseases and Skin Diseases and Wound Repair, strategic programmes that directly address Singapore’s healthcare challenges of tomorrow, including caring for its rapidly ageing population. Intersecting with these programmes are cross-cutting themes such as Health Technologies, Developmental Biology & Regenerative Medicine and Microbiome Medicine for which we have unique strengths.

We recognise that human health and potential is the product of multi-organ and multi-system interactions, and that diseases occur in a multifaceted manner. We therefore seek to promote cross-talk and synergies between and among different research themes as well as across different disciplines.Professor Lim Kah Leong, Vice-Dean (Research)
