SOH Shu E
Shu E is a research scientist at Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences, A*STAR and Department of Paediatrics at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). With a keen interest in clinical research, she received the NUS research scholarship to pursue her PhD in the Department of Paediatrics where she conducted a double-blind randomized placebo controlled clinical trial on the supplementation of probiotics in the first six months of life in Asian infants at risk of allergic diseases. Before joining A*STAR, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health and Department of Paediatrics, NUS. She was given the great opportunity to work closely with the Principal Investigators to oversee the developmental cohorts under the Translational Clinical Research (TCR) Flagship Programme on Developmental pathways to health and disease: metabolic, neurodevelopmental and related outcomes. In addition to the GUSTO (Growing Up in Singapore Towards healthy Outcomes) birth cohort study, she has currently expanded her scope to manage the new S-PRESTO (Singapore Preconception Study of Long-Term Maternal and Child Outcomes) study and NiPPeR (Nutritional Intervention Preconception and During Pregnancy to Maintain Healthy Glucose Metabolism & OffspRing Health) clinical trial.
Her research interests are focused on defining the critical developmental pathways and mechanisms that link maternal and perinatal health to child development with the longer-term goal of developing more effective approaches to intervention and prevention of non-communicable diseases.
