Ageing and Mitochondrial Biology

Fundamental biochemical insights, with particular focus on molecular genetics and mitochondrial biology, are obtained in molecular and evolutionary mechanisms of human health and ageing, paving the way towards impacting quality of life and healthy ageing in humans.

Metabolic Disorder

Metabolic Disorders

Taking an Asian-Centric focus on the metabolic disorders of diabetes and metabolic cancer, basic biomedical discoveries and translational research are at the forefront of biochemistry research in the treatment of these disorders of the human body.

synthetic biology

Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biochemistry, strategically engineering biology for purposeful function, will lead the way in chemical- and cell-based therapeutics development in the treatment of human diseases and solving grand challenges in society.
