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

ment, and energy. SCELSE is an outcome of our efforts to build a world leading team to exploit a unique window of opportunity in applying life sciences advances to Sustainable Earth. With SCELSE providing the leading science, the university is poised to scale greater heights in Sustainable Earth. We are pleased to partner NUS in this effort as each university contributes its own unique strengths to make SCELSE a world leader in Biofilm research. I am confident SCELSE will bolster Singapore's drive to be a global scientific and technological hub in the domain of environmental life sciences engineering, and contribute to our nation's environmental sustainability efforts and economic growth into the next decade."

8. NUS President Prof Tan Chorh Chuan said, "NUS is delighted to work with NTU in this strategic partnership. SCELSE is special because it sits at the interface between engineering and life sciences, and draws on complementary strengths from NUS and NTU in these disciplines. It has the potential to develop novel technologies that can be applied to many different industry sectors. For NUS, the unique skills that will be delivered by SCELSE will also be of value to our researchers working in the NUS integrative sustainability research cluster which aims to help enhance Singapore as a global city."

9. On the importance of the SCELSE's research, Professor Kjelleberg, director-designate of SCELSE noted, "We now know that microorganisms live as biofilm communities as the dominant mode of life. Their communal action is central to environmental sustainability. With SCELSE, we will harness the research synergies across NTU and NUS, and work closely with NEWRI and the Life Sciences Institute, to deliver the first comprehensive understanding of the biofilm mode of life. In this way, we will translate fundamental knowledge on biofilms into life science based environmental engineering to effectively address the ever increasing water and environmental cha
