LKCMedicine has recruited an outstanding group of faculty whose interests and expertise span the three scientific pillars of Regenerative Medicine: developmental biology, tissue engineering and stem cell biology. Their research is supported by superb infrastructure at LKCMedicine’ s two research buildings: the mammalian resource centre, tissue culture and light microscopy facilities at Clinical Sciences Building (CSB) and the zebrafish facility with dedicated confocal and single plane illumination imaging systems, as well as the Singapore Phenome Centre (SPC) at the Experimental Medicine Building (EMB).
Current research programmes include the developmental biology of epithelia and muscle in zebrafish; and pancreas, kidney and vascular development in mammals, through the engineering of scaffolds and compound delivery systems for bone and central nervous system repair and regeneration, to the generation of specialised cell types for cell replacement therapy and organoids for disease modelling, drug testing and organ transplant.
