NTU professor bags inaugural award honoring women in science
Date:9/2/2009

Associate Professor Lam Yeng Ming, 35, a lecturer with the School of Materials Science and Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), has been awarded one of the three inaugural L'Oral Singapore for Women in Science National Fellowships 2009.

Assoc Prof Lam and the two other women scientists have each won a S$20,000 fellowship. The Fellowships seek to recognise the contributions of women scientists to the advancement of science and research in Singapore.

Assoc Prof Lam will be undertaking research on the self-assembly of peptides for sensing applications.

"For my project, I want to learn from nature about the design of self-assembled biomolecules that have different functionalities," said Assoc Prof Lam. "I will make use of biomolecules such as peptides to generate conduction channels for electrons. Once this is achieved, I will construct sensors using these peptides."

Assoc Prof Lam received her Bachelor of Applied Science (Honours) in Materials Engineering from NTU in 1996. She worked as a development engineer at Texas Instruments before she went on to do her PhD in Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. After completing her PhD studies, she returned to her alma mater, NTU, as an Assistant Professor in 2001.

Her research interests are in the understanding and designing of materials to achieve well-defined morphologies. These nano-sized structures are obtained by controlling the interactions between molecules or peptides, which are also known as soft materials. Some applications for these soft, organised materials are in solar energy harvesting and sensing.

"My most significant research contribution is in the field of self-assembly," said Assoc Prof Lam. "I have demonstrated through experiments and calculations that it is possible to accurately parameterise molecular systems. The mesoscale morphology of the molecular system can then be
