The Institute of Bioengineering and Bioimaging (IBB) is located in Singapore's research and development hub for biomedical sciences, at the heart of Biopolis. The institute is located at Helios and Nanos and is staffed by imaging experts, bioengineers, chemists, physicists, biologists and clinicians. IBB integrates the capabilities and technologies built up by the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) and Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC), which were established in 2003 and 2004 respectively. IBB's work includes the following scientific breakthroughs and innovations:
Biomedical Devices & Diagnostics
Biophotonics & Bioimaging
IBB spearheads multi-disciplinary, application-driven research at the interface of biology, chemistry, engineering and medicine, and work closely with stakeholders across the ecosystem to deliver innovative solutions in strategic areas such as cancer, infectious diseases, and food and nutrition.
Finding the balance between work and life outside the lab can be challenging for some, but it is important for maintaining good mental health. Speaking to one of our research officers, Rachel Tan, we learn how she makes time for the things that she enjoys outside of work.
We are glad to announce that four of our IBB researchers have been recognised in Stanford University's Top 2% Scientists Worldwide.
Recently, our Senior Principal Investigator, Prof Hanry Yu, and his team received a grant from the Good Food Institute (GFI) to 3D-print whole meat substitutes using layers of scalable 2D-micro-imprinted plant protein sheets.
