NTU has achieved enormous growth and global recognition as a research-intensive university. Critical to this has been the acquisition and accessibility to cutting-edge research facilities, funded through internal and external sources under a shared facilities platform.
The objective of the Pan University Shared Research Facilities is to ensure that state-of-the-art, expensive research equipment that requires highly skilled operators, are made accessible, visible and seamless to the research community in NTU and beyond. The shared platform is managed by highly qualified technical and scientific experts, which foster interdisciplinary and inter-college collaborations. The facility hosts a wide range of analytical, characterisation, spectroscopy, micro/nanofabrication equipment and other cognitive and neuroscience study tools.
NTU currently has seven shared facility platforms, covering a wide range of analytical, characterisation, spectroscopy, micro/nanofabrication equipment and other cognitive, behavioural and neuroscience study tools. In addition, an animal research facility (ARF) supports and enhances the bio-medical research. Moving forward, the shared facility platforms are seen as underpinning the strategic research themes and new areas emerging in the NTU 2025 implementation plan.
