NTU sets up centre on micro-organism research for environmental engineering and sustainability
Date:2/10/2010

Singapore as a leading centre for world class R&D attracting research talent from Singapore and other parts of the world. We expect such RCEs to come out with research breakthroughs as well as innovative technologies that will make Singapore a hotbed for innovation."

4. Dr Ng Eng Hen, Minister for Education, said: "Besides scientific excellence, the work of SCELSE will also contribute to Singapore's national priorities in water, energy and urban sustainability. SCELSE is also the first RCE to feature a strong collaboration between NUS and NTU. We believe that harnessing the synergy of the two universities would greatly advance research and lead to the development of solutions to pressing problems of a rapidly urbanizing Asia. "

5. SCELSE will be led by Professor Staffan Kjelleberg, founder of the Centre for Marine Bio-Innovation at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia, and a research leader at NTU since late 2008. Prof Kjelleberg plans to develop the SCELSE into a world leader on biofilm science research and to transfer this knowledge to the industry for the betterment of the environment.

6. SCELSE will build upon NTU's strengths in engineering, environment and water technologies as well as NUS' leading position in life science research. In addition to recruiting several world experts in environmental research, the RCE will draw on interdisciplinary talent from NTU's Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and collaborate with the Earth Observatory of Singapore and the Mechanobiology RCE at the NUS.

7. NTU President Dr Su Guaning said, "NTU is proud to lead the development of the Research Centre of Excellence on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering. NTU has been building upon the theme of 'Sustainable Earth' as one of its peaks of excellence. We have in place multidisciplinary research platforms to address key challenges in water, the environ
