Singapore has built up foundational research in stem cells, tissue engineering and skin biology with a focus on Asian skin types. Thanks to our diverse multi-ethnic population, we provide a valuable resource for companies seeking to understand a variety of the world’s skin types in a single location.
Singapore’s focus is to integrate and leverage engineering capabilities in materials, imaging, modelling and simulation to create and develop technologies that address the needs of Asian skin types and preferences.
