NTU launches new centre to develop new eye-deas for occular therapeutics
Date:1/29/2013

lso looking into developing a novel nano-carrier system which will be able to deliver drugs for a sustained period of time, to the back of the eye, the retina, when injected in the front of the eye. Currently, only regular painful and invasive injections directly into the back of eye can deliver drugs to treat retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Prof Venkatraman said he and his researchers look forward to working closely with NTU's new medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, which is jointly set up with Imperial College London.

The new medical school is set to take in its first batch of 50 students in July this year and is starting its research and development in infections and metabolic diseases and neuroscience.

Both the new ocular centre and the new medical school contribute to NTU's research strengths in Future Healthcare, which is one of the university's Five Peaks of Excellence.

The Peaks of Excellence are five key areas of research which NTU hopes to make a global mark in by 2015 under its 5-year strategic plan. The other peaks include Sustainability, New Media, Innovation Asia, and the Best of East and West.
