Established in 2000 as the Singapore Genomics Program, the renamed Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) is a national flagship initiative with a global vision that seeks to use genomic sciences to improve public health and prosperity. Professor Ng Huck Hui currently heads GIS as its Executive Director.
As a centre for genomic discovery, GIS pursues the integration of technology, genetics, and biology towards the goal of individualised medicine. It focuses on investigating diverse biological and biomedical problems, including cancer, infectious diseases, stem cells and development, with an emphasis on insights gleaned from genomic sequences and from technologies that probe gene regulation and its control.
