Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research to set up its first Asian branch in Singapore
Date:11/5/2007

m Chuan Poh, Chairman of A*STAR. A distinctive feature of this non-profit, private cancer institute is that it holistically addresses the entire discovery continuum, from basic laboratory studies to early clinical trials. Similarly, Singapore has a highly integrated, comprehensive approach to cancer research.

Leveraging on Singapores integrated approach towards biomedical sciences research, LICR-Singapore will have a unique mode of operations. Under this arrangement, the LICR investigators will have the flexibility to be hosted at the two medical schools and A*STAR research institutes, with A*STARs Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences (SICS) as its coordination centre. According to Dr. Simpson, all other LICR branches are hosted physically in just one university, institute or hospital. The functional interactions between the medical schools, A*STAR and SICS means that we can have LICR investigators located across the Singaporean research constellation and still be truly integrated.

A joint search committee, co-headed by scientific luminaries, will recruit an internationally renowned clinician-scientist to be Director of LICR-Singapore. The search committee is led by Webster Cavenee, PhD, Director of the LICR San Diego Branch and Distinguished Professor at the University of California San Diego; George Demetri, M.D., Director of the Ludwig Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School; and Edward Holmes, M.D., Executive Deputy Chairman of A*STARs Biomedical Research Council and Executive Chairman of Singapores National Medical Research Council.

LICR-Singapore will have up to five investigators. In addition to having appointments at A*STAR research institutes, these clinician-scientists will receive tenure-track appointments at NUS-YLLSoM and Duke-NUS GMS, positioning them at the interface of academic and clinical research.

In addition to strengthening Singapores capabilities in cancer research and clinical tri
