Leading scientist Miranda Yap dies, 4 years after suffering aneurysm, The Straits Times Online
One of Singapore's top scientists, Dr Miranda Yap, died on Wednesday, more than four years after she suffered an aneurysm on the golf course.
Dr Yap, who was awarded the country's highest science and technology honour in 2009, had since remained bedridden and was largely unresponsive.
The award, called President's Science and Technology Medal (PSTM), was formerly known as the National Science and Technology Medal. It was first given out in 1992, and there had been no female winners before Dr Yap.
