SPMS students won the Bronze Award at the University Physics Competition
In November 2020, a team of three physics students from SPMS took part in the University Physics Competition (UPC), an international competition for physics undergraduates.
The Best of Both Worlds: BSc in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry with Second Major in Business (International Trading)
Launching in August 2021, this selective programme, hosted in NTU School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, is offered in partnership with the Nanyang Business School (NBS) and the Centre of Excellence International Trading (CEIT).
Finding Therapeutics in Extracellular Vesicles
Given their significance in cell-cell communication, Extracellular Vesicles (EV) have great therapeutic potential. In this read, Ph.D. student Tan Chee Fan and Associate Professor Sze Siu Kwan adapted a method to study EV protein levels from a different angle. A protein was also identified as a potential target for the regulation of EV biogenesis.
