A NOTE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Chong Yap Seng

Welcome to the Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences (SICS), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore.

We pride ourselves on the work we’ve done – and continue to do – in preventive health and maximising human potential, which is seemingly simple yet complex in its constituents. Behind our success is a team of independent programmes and investigators who bring to the table diverse knowledge, experience and ideas.

Founded in 2007 on this interaction of disciplines, SICS consistently captures dynamic opportunities to improve our core business of metabolic and neurocognitive health. We are closely aligned with research and policy priorities at both the national and international level, and have an extensive network of alumni and associates in academia, industry and government to rapidly channel our efforts to application.

We hope SICS continues to serve as a nurturing ground to spur the rapid cultivation of clinical research ideas in metabolic and neurocognitive health, as well as the growth of a clinical research community in Singapore and Asia.

As we continue to progress, I fully expect new discoveries and findings aimed at making everyday choices positively matter – not just for the immediate, but for sustainable health through every life stage. We invite you to journey with us.
